Everything I've read that talks about partitioning the hard drive when doing new installs suggests setting up a separate partition for /home.

As newbies, people will often choose "partition automaically" when setting up Fedora .... so why not have the "automatic" choice make some "good, standard operating procedure" choices and do that?


Just in case you arent aware of it, FC3 ships with LVM enabled by default which is pretty flexible if you decide to move things around later. The default setup is simple enough to fit the non technical users.
