Pardon the newbie excitement but I have successfully mapped a
half-height external USB Hard Drive as my /home and after copying /home
in FC4 to it then booting into FC5 and mapping /home to it...presto
bango...I am now running FC5 no worries. I did lose a few things in the
transfer but not much. Which is quite an accomplishment for a newbie
like myself. Matter of fact, on a back burner, I may start writing about
this. I think that given the popularity I am seeing it may be wise to
tell people about this kind of thing so that upgrades go easier. Plus it
puts your data on a different partition. Anyone got any advice on what
else should be separated like that?
