Another way - But this is wrong info!
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 02, '01 12:45:41PM
Taking a look myself at the fstab files in the /etc/ directory we see the following:

/dev/hd0a / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/hd0e /var ufs rw 1 2
/dev/hd0f /usr ufs rw 1 2
/dev/hd0d /tmp mfs rw,-s=12000,-b=8192,-f=1024,-T=sd660 0 0

[localhost:/etc] haplo% cat fstab.rd |more
/dev/rd0a / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/rd0e /usr ufs rw 1 2
/dev/rd0f /var ufs rw 1 2
/dev/rd0d /tmp mfs rw,-s=12000,-b=8192,-f=1024,-T=rd335 0 0

[localhost:/etc] haplo% cat fstab.sd |more
/dev/sd0a / ufs rw 1 1
/dev/sd0e /var ufs rw 1 2
/dev/sd0f /usr ufs rw 1 2
/dev/sd0d /tmp mfs rw,-s=12000,-b=8192,-f=1024,-T=sd660 0 0

that fact that I have done similar with different unix flavors would seemingly indicate that mounting a seperate disk/partition as /users would not be any problem.

It should be able to be accomplished by editing the 3 fstab files with a line similar to

/dev/sd0x /users ufs rw 1 1

where x is the partition and 0 is the drive number.

Note, I have not tried this yet myself because I do not have an extra partition or drive to work with currently. You should be able to get the drive/partition information from dmesg from the command line after you boot the machine.
