Changing /home partition


Hi All,


I recently bought a new hdd and want to move all my user accounts there, is it as simple as copying them over and putting an entry in /etc/fstab like;


mount -t reiserfs /dev/hdc5 /home


or is that way out


tia.

it's as simple as that, except the fstab entry would look more like this:
Code:
/dev/hdc5        /home            reiserfs    defaults         0   2
i.e., not with the mount command.

Yep, like synaptical said... Pretty simple.

Out of curiosity: why hdc5? You're using the other partitions for something else? You're not creating extended partition as the only partition on the disk, are you?

yes its currently formatted to one big reiserfs partition, but that was just an example really.

What are the implications

None that I can think of, but to me it would be really confusing. I'd keep wondering what I did with the other partitions and where did I mount them.

Basically at the moment it formatted to one big partitions just to store media, mp3 music and videos.

I will split it up 50/50 more than likely
