28 One more question. Currently /usr is on / and that is the way it was
29 when I built the init thingy. Do I need to rebuild the init thingy so
30 that it knows /usr is on a separate partition and will mount it or will
31 it know that when it reboots?
33 Thanks again for all the help. Already headed off a couple problems.
