I asked the question the other day, whether to do a standard install or
a custom install. This was brought about because I read several
sources, including G. Lehey's "The Complete FreeBSD"
I will be doing a Custom install. My question however, is looking at
page 70, in "The Complete FreeBSD" and I quote "Use the rest of the
space on disk for a /home file system. as long as it's possible to back
it up on a single tape. Otherwise make multiple file systems."
My question is do I make multiple /home directories.? I have a SATA 80GB
hard drive, so as Greg L. suggests 4GB to 6GB for the root file
1GB to 2GB for the Swap file. The rest of the disk for the /home file.
That would leave me with a /home of approx. 72GB. I would appreciate
any thoughts as to how I should do this. The computer will be used as
a stand alone workstation, with internet and email access for now. I do
have a large number of JPEG files in my existing /home directory.
