10.5: Easily change the location of your home directory
Authored by: sipatel on Oct 31, '07 06:43:20PM

"Then Control-click on your account's name in the Accounts pane of System Preferences and choose the Advanced Options item that appears. In the new Advanced Options screen, you'll see a field for Home Directory; enter the path to your new home directory here, or click on the Choose button and navigate to the new home directory."

I have four internal HDs -- the main drive still has Tiger installed and continues to be my OS of choice until I am happy with Leopard.

When I do boot into Leopard, would it be okay just to point Leopard to my Tiger using the above procedure? Will this screw-up my Tiger user folder?

This is exactly what I have set up now - a drive with Tiger and my user account on it , and a second drive with Leopard on it which points to my user account on the Tiger drive. I have two accounts setup up on the Leopard drive, the Tiger User account, and an administrator's account on the Leopard drive that I can switch into if I need to, such as when I want to be able to access the Tiger drive through Leopard's disk utility. Has been working well for a couple of days.
