Ok I'm currently in the process of downloading FreeBSD 6. Now I had a question about mount points:
Here's my partition setup: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y13...heFall/hda.png
/hda1 is my Fedora Partition
The little free space after it is going to be the FreeBSD swap slice
/hda5 is my home partition. I use it as a universal home folder for each distro I install.
/hda6 and /hda7 are Partitions with Data on them, I'll figure out a way to expand my home folder to take up all that space and contain that data on it.
/hda8 is has Debian on it, actually I never use it at the moment so it'll probably have to go.
/hda9 is the swap partition I use for any Linux distro I install on the system.
And finally the last partition ist where FreeBSD is going.
My question is: Can I set the /home mount point to /hda5 during installation, though it's on an Extended partition? Somewhere I read (or I think I read) that you can only allocate mount points on the whole extended partition. I just want to mount my BSD home folder on hda5. What can I do for that? Or is it impossible because /hda5 is ext3? Please help me out.
Will this whole thing go easily or am I better off backing up my stuff, wiping my hard drive and setting up the partitions from scratch?
Thanks a lot!
