/home is always mounted standard setup. If you didn't changed something in the default install of FC5 a LVM Partition System has been created and everything is stored on / like var, opt, usr, home, tmp.

During the setup you created a user account and that one stores his files and configs all in his home dir.

Locate the fstab file in your /etc directory and post it.

It should have a line something to the effect of:

/dev/hdb3 /home ext2 defaults 1 2

If it does not then you should add a line replacing what ever harddrive letter and partition
(For instance if the partition you want is hda2 then you should replace /dev/hdb3 with /dev/hda2)
