Adding a separate /home
I just built a new computer and it has two hard drives in it. I was originally going to put them into RAID1, but since the onboard controller turned out to basically be a software controller and not a true hardware one, it was too much of a headache to configure right now. What I now want to do is use the second disk (partially) as a /home that I can maintain during upgrades, etc. I have one setup like this for Slackware already, but I'm trying to get this accomplished in NetBSD. Here is the setup:
sda1 - Slackware
sda2 - Linux swap
sda3 - NetBSD
sda4 - (probably) NetBSD-testing
sdb1 - Slackware /home
sdb2 - NetBSD /home
It is the sdb2 that I need to get configured. I need to format it (I assume that will be done using fdisk), and then configure NetBSD on sda3 to mount it as /home (edit fstab?).
I have an idea of how to accomplish this, but not entirely (especially the fine details - still learning BSD).
What I figure is format it with fdisk (not certain of the correct format and sequence of the switches) and then edit fstab to have it mount.
Is that the correct fstab entry?
And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
