    I don't know how, honestly, but a quick and dirty hack would be to symlink the /home/fo and /home directories together.

    This is definately not a permanent solution, though :)

    You could edit /etc/passwd and change the home directory for your user to /home instead of /home/something. Careful in there though, you could easily make it impossible to login

    Yeah, that would be better. I didn't realize at first that hda3 was being mounted to /home/fo, I thought you just wanted to change home directory. I should learn to read or something. But if you just mount it to /home it should work.
