How can I use this feature? I've searched on Google, but haven't found anything :(
I just read today (bit of a doh! moment) that you can have /home on a separate partition and that's fine but what I am wondering is can that partition be the /home for other installations on the same system. i.e. I dive in the deep end and dual boot with Arch but can access the same /home from both Ubuntu and Arch? (I'm using Arch as an example but I'm possibly not that brave yet.)
Are there any good (and by good I mean simple) guides or advice I should be following as to the best way to partition my drive for such an endeavour, e.g. do I need multiple swap partitions? Are there any other partitions I should be considering?
I would like to say a big "thank you" to everyone who has helped me with my questions so far as its filling me with confidence that I will be able to have a great system that I can play with and not compromise the stuff I need to have for work. People always talk about how cool the Linux community is and this thread has shown me its not about smart shades and awesome beards (it could be that too) but its really about people who are willing to share the smallest insights with someone whom other communities would deem not worthy of knowing anything because they have not completed some right of passage. Many, many thanks everyone!!! All I have to do now is get time to put my hardware into one box and set about some serious installs :)
Once I get this whole thing sorted, I have a notion that compiling my own kernel would be cool but I also think that I'd like to be awesome enough to go hunting the Jabberwoky with a stick and a pea shooter :)
Many thanks again Folks!!!
