Partitioned OS X installation with seperate swap partition.....

How is this new? Everything in this hint is taken from older hints on osxhints and from http://kung-foo.tv/xtips.php.

I don't mind a rehash, but "found very little information no how to do it" is bollocks:

Please have a little patience for those of us who aren't BSD gurus and haven't been using it for eons.

two things:
- afaik, using the device (/dev/disk#s#) file in the fstab hasn't been mentioned here before. so that's new on it's own.
- having the whole process laid out like that is new too.I imagine it will be very helpful for those who are trying to dig up the whole enchilada on installing OS X on a partitioned setup.

Yes, this HAS been explained AND spelled out.

The only part that's not in the actual text of the hint has to do with the fstab, but if you read the comments, it's there.

What I meant by "very little information" was that nothing was very well formatted or put together. After pulling info from about 5 different sources, I was able to figure it out.

Coming from the support realm, I just wasn't satisifed with the bits and pieces that were spread here and there.
