Thanks for all the input on this.  It's pretty much the same of arguments  
I've heard from friends, not that I expected any earth shaking remarks.  I  
learned a LONG time ago to have /home in a separate partition so all 8 of  
my linux boxes at home are setup that way.  I have a test box that I've  
used to test the test releases and found no real major issues.  I just  
wanted to see if anyone else had some bad experiences with it.
