Changing mount points in FC9


I just installed Fedora Core 9, 2.6.25-14 kernel. I previously had Mandriva Free 2006 on it, with my hard drive divided into /boot, /, /home, /swap, /Opt, /mnt/Windows, and/tmp.

That way I could install programs into /Opt and applications could use /tmp without interfering with /.

When I installed FC9, I went to select mount points, and was not allowed to select separate mount points for Opt and tmp. The installer simply put Opt and tmp under / and gave me mount points of disk, disk-1 and disk-2 under /media for my old opt, tmp, and /mnt/windows partitions.

I have two questions.

1. How do I remove /Opt and /tmp from my root partition and reassign them to the disk and disk-2?

2. How do I get disk and disk-2 (after renaming to /Opt and /tmp) out from the /media mount point and into their own mount points, like they were in Mandriva Free 2006?

I know fairly little about linux, but I've never let my ignorance stand in the way of doing something, and I do have back ups of my personal and data files.

Next week: FC9 tells me I have updates, but when I click on install updates, it either gives me a "fail" message or nothing happens. Is it my breath?

Thanks,

Moxieman

Mount the future /opt and /tmp partitions and copy everything from the current /opt and /tmp directories to them then edit /etc/fstab.
