Hard drive hokey pokey


That's what its all about:

I have 2 hard drives:

Pri Master: 3GB, Linux, mounted as /
Pri Slave: 3GB, Mounted as home

OK, Ignoring the fact that the slave is mounted as home (i can figure this one out on my own), I wan't to switch the hard drives, ie. the master to the slave and vice versa.

I know I have a lot to change, but what all is it, aside from my BIOS?

Big question, please help.

You'll have to crack open your case and have a play to do that properly.

hmmm...why do you want to do that ?
you could change the jumpers on one drive from master to slave and v.v. on the other drive.
then boot your sys with a cd, and re-install the boot loader.
( lilo or grub )

Here's what I think i have to change:
fstab (Mountpoints?)
grub
actual hardware
BIOS

Anything else?
I'm doing this 'cause I'm going to build Linux From Scratch, I'd like it as Pri Master
