Hi Garrett,

Sorry for not making that clear in the first place: I want to have an
*empty* /home on the slave machine, just a partition that can be
mounted under /home. My /home on the slave machine is /dev/hda2d like
on the slave machine albeit with a different size.

(The reason is I want to clone installations having an empty /home on
the slave machines that can be "populated" later on)

So my problem is on how to set up a partition, say /dev/hda2d on the
slave machine in order to be able to mount it as /home.
