Nothing prevents me per se - this is just an existing system that I'd rather not repartition if I can get away with it. Right now /home is part of / so I'm trying to avoid changing that. So far it seems like I might need to change it anyway though... -- Randy Barlow http://electronsweatshop.com -- gentoo-security@l.g.o mailing list
