Create a Users partition for your Home directory
Authored by: bluehz on Nov 08, '03 12:48:03AM

I have had no probems with my /Users on a seperate partition. Although I found some of the older tips on enabling this were not working. For me the simplest technique worked. Edited /etc/fstab to add in the /Users drive, then simply created an empty dir name /Users on my root and the /Users drive mounts directly to that. To the rest of the system it shows up seamlessly as living on the /root anyway - so no installers balk at it or anything else that can get finicky. Did the same thing with my /applications also on another partition.
