I've reached a point where I'm feeling more comfortable with Debian. So far it has been the best distro to learn and use. It wasn't easy and required lots of reading, but now I feel I can get something usable (far better than windoze options).
So far I managed to install succesfully a base system (Sarge, 2.6, no X-Window, PII 128MB, 30GB), with the following partitioning scheme:
/hda1 /boot 250MB
/hda2 / 10GB
/hda3 /VG1 20GB (LVM)
The problem is that I might install the following components:
- Software RAID
Initially I thought they would all go to /home, but found out that I was wrong. So what I want to do is move the required folders (/var, /usr, etc) out of / (root) to LVM so I can manage their size.
I am tempted to copy the contents of each directory to their new location, then edit /etc/fstab to reflect the new mount points and reboot. However, I do not know if this is possible or safe.
Is there any HOW-TO, guide or instructions on how to move mount points from one partition to another?
