Create a Users partition for your Home directory
Authored by: Hes Nikke on Aug 19, '03 10:28:07AM
the problem with the label atrabute is that if you have a name conflict (2 partitions named Users) bad things can happen. instead i use UUID's it works smooth as silk :)

i do have problems with a couple of apps, that are still looking for files on the internal HD even though my paths and everything look right. the 1st is SimCity4, it just flat out refuses to save. and when i quit the game and come back, it shows a big empty square were my city should be (not even any landscaping!) the other program that i have problems with is the KeySpan DMR, it works, but it spits out a bunch of errors, and stores all it's settings in /username/Library/Preferences (my paths clearly say /Users/username/)

oddly, office works fine for me, probably because i installed it before i set up my users partition :)

vacuums do not suck. they merely provide an absence that allows other objects to take the place of what becomes absent.
