    Hi,

    I have a WinXP/FC2 dual-boot setup, but I'm running out of room on my ext2 partition. I've noticed that a lot of the space could be freed up if the /home directory was on my other drive (I have 2 HDDs). How would I go about setting up FC2 to mount /home from a different drive? Do I need to erase/copy whats in my /home already to where I'd like to mount it?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Edit /etc/fstab. And yes, you should move the contents to the new drive.

    Okay, so now I have another problem. When I go to make a new partition with PM in Windows, it tells me the partition tables are bad. How do I fix this (either in Linux or Windows)?
