For many years my Fedora has been in one partition off the /. This list has convinced me that it makes real sense to put /boot and /home into their own partitions. Now I am thinking about doing that.

For /boot it needs no special connection to the main partition. It has all this in it's grub.conf and initrd files. All you need to do is retrain grub to goto the new partition. That is simple from a Rescue cd.

Now /home is different. It will be in a new partition and connected to the main F7 by /ect/fstab entry. Not sure what that will look like. Maybe like this if /home is in /dev/sda7 the entery in fstab would be:

/dev/sda7         /home        ext3      defaults      0  0

   Is any of this correct?

Mostly. The last two numbers should be 1 2. The / partition needs to be mounted before the partition mount points off of /

Example from my file.

LABEL=/             /                       ext3    defaults        1 1
LABEL=/home         /home                   ext3    defaults        1 2
LABEL=/boot         /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 2


Thanks Jim. yes the numbers 1 2 look good. I need to read man fstab again. I have never understood the numbers. Now it is time.
