Put a 2nd kanotix at hdb 3/,-4/home. 1st is at hdb8/,-9/home.#2 is using 1st's /home
 
Again, Ive installed two Kanotix's. The first I installed is at extended parition hdb 8 for/ and hdb9 for /home.
I installed a second Kanotix to tinker with at primary partitions hdb 3 for/ and hdb 4 for /home respectivly.

Anyway, the problem is that the second kanotix started with the first kanotix's /home (hdb 9) mounted, instead of hdb 4 /home.

I am quintuple booting, with windows in hdb1-2 Swap is on hdb5, and the way I have been doing this is to place copies of all the kernels I need to boot in Mepis partition hdb6 and adjusting grub from there.so . . . .

The main point is: How and where do I change what, to point to hdb4 for home, rather than hdb9.? How do I do it? where do I do it?


Thanks for the help.

You need to edit /etc/fstab. e.g. change something like
Code:

/dev/hdb9            /home                reiserfs  acl,user_xattr        1 2
to
Code:

/dev/hdb4            /home                reiserfs  acl,user_xattr        1 2
