Creating user-files specific partition
I'd like to have my files in /home/myusername/ written on a distinct partition.
This way I could install/re-install distributions without touching it and risk losing files (this happened already).
I have some very basic understanding of the command-line, of the mount/umount process, and of the fstab file, but I don't really know where to start. I currently use Ubuntu 6.10 (which isn't running too well) and the disk manager program from Dapper is not here anymore.
Could anyone set me on the right track?
Thanks very much!
