[SOLVED] is it too late to make a /home partition?
I've been running various Linux distros, and have found that Mint was the best one for me. I'm currently running Mint 9 Gnome 64 bit. It's currently dualbooting with Win 7 Pro, on a 460GB partition, with a 4GB swap. Basically, I split my 1TB drive between Windows & Mint, making Mint & the swap logical partitions, for further expansion.
What I'd like to do is to shrink the Mint / partition, and make a /home partition, for my data, especially my VM's, which are five already. I've found that Windows runs better in VirtualBox than on a partition of it's on. Plus, XP doesn't have native SATA drivers.
But, this is NOT a request on help with Windows, as I'm adding some Linux VM's also. What I need to know, is it too late to create this partition, and my home folder be moved there? Because if I decide to upgrade, I don't want to lose my VM's. I do plan to stick with Mint 9 for a while, as it's a LTS distro, and I prefer to stick with what works.
BTW, I've used Mint 10, and I like 9 better.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
