I read that also however, I have a question about it. In the example I
read (by Doug White) he used /usr/home as the point of reference. The
question I have is this, what becomes of the space left over on the 1st
drive now that /usr/home has been effectively moved?
Can you merge this in someplace else? Say /swap or /var?
Nothing is ever so bad it can't be made worse by
firing the coach.
