separate /Users volume
Authored by: sjk on Mar 31, '05 01:33:43PM

I haven't had trouble using Final Cut Express or any other apps with a separate /Users volume attached via the /etc/fstab UUID method referred to by Hes Nikke earlier in this hint. It's the most transparent way I know of to ensure "/Users/username/..." pathnames will work on my other Macs which still have /Users on the startup volume. The NetInfo method would be my second choice, and even preferable in some situations. The symlink method has too much uncertainty for me to trust or recommend it.
