Managing diskspace - folder on another h.d.?
When I installed *nix, I created the following partitions:
/windows (dual boot box)
I apparently gave '/' wayyyy to much space /home not enough. With my music collection, am now running out of space on /home and need help. I would like to put a folder in /home, that actually resides on the / partition. Is this possible? if so, how ?
Thanks in advance.

Try creating required folder on the root partition, set permissions/ownership using chown and chmod, then use ln to link from your home folder ...Code:
man chown chmod ln

If you have an spare partition, all you need to to is to mount it wherever you want.
First, locate your partition using fdisk -l, or gparted or whatever tool you prefer. Triple check that it's the right partition if you need to format it or you might regret it later.
Once you have it formated you can add a line for it in /etc/fstab and mount it at, let's say, /home/new2nix/music/ (the directory must exist).
