can more storage space be added to an existing /home directory?
i've been running mandriva for a while and would like to expand my /home
directory. can this be done by simply adding a drive and mounting it under
/home? or will that conflict with the existing drive's /home?
how does this work in mandriva?
or would the way to do this be to add a larger drive and copy the existing
/home data over to it?
iow, can the directory /home be assigned across multiple partitions/drives
without raiding? or is it a one shot assignment?
i suppose what i'm wondering is if the mount assignment is a virtual thing
which can point to multiple physical devices/partitions.
sorry to run on. just not sure how to make my questions clear when i'm in
a state of confusion.
