Think I found it... http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-questions/2005-July/092614.ht ml That's not good then. I'm setting up a system with many users, who will need access to /var and their /home. They will have quotas, so data in /var + data in /home must be less than their quota. Obviously it's not a good idea to create separate /var and /home partitions as for example, if say /var filled up, the user won't be able to write to it, even though they are "allowed" to since their quota hasn't been reached. Hmmm... Does /boot have to be in the first 1024 cylinders still? I could adjust my scheme as such: swap 1gb /tmp 500mb (mounted noexec,nosuid) / remainder Will this cause any dramas?
