Discussion on: How I am partitioning the HDD for Linux setup.

brilliant! I made the mistake once, following a linux tutorial that I should make a home partition, and I tried to use this for my home directory.

Later when I trashed my system, I thought the home partition was safe, but alas I should have used that as you suggest, and left my home config directory alone!

Something happened where the symlink didn't work precisely, and so some of the files in that home directory lived on one partition, and some the other, unbeknownst to me!
