I know before asking this has been
covered profusely, and I have read
a lot in the handbook, man pages,
fbsd web site & mailing list archives.
But, there are some things I just do
not understand. My main question is,
is it okay to change
I ask because of the repository size
compared to what I have on this box
on /home & /usr.

Filesystem       Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/amrd0s1e    1.9G    277M    1.5G    15%    /home

Filesystem       Size    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/amrd0s1g     11G    2.3G    7.7G    23%    /usr

So you can see why I want to use /usr/ncvs
instead of /home/ncvs. I guess I'm a lousy
googler, but I just couldn't seem to phrase
my question to find the answer I wanted.

My 2nd question is, when you cvsup an individual
release, it says not to include ports-all and
doc-all, as you will wipe out what you already
have. But, when you don't specify an individual
release, just *default release=cvs and src-all,
if you specify ports-all & doc-all, you won't
wipe out what you already have. Am I understanding
it correctly?
Thanks in advance for your patience & any help
& explanations I receive.
