Having followed some possibily outdated directive..

i have set up my filesystem in such a way that i am wondering
if it is impairing performance,

kv_bsd# df -m
Filesystem  1M-blocks Used Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/ad0s2a       248  136    92    60%    /
devfs               0    0     0   100%    /dev
/dev/ad0s2e       550    0   506     0%    /tmp
/dev/ad0s2f     36333 9473 23953    28%    /usr
/dev/ad0s2d       496  115   341    25%    /var
linprocfs           0    0     0   100%    /usr/compat/linux/proc

i have been too lazy to use useradd so i just keep running as root.
i did mkdir /home at some point but then i kept overflowing /
i installed the GIMP graphics program and it crashed, but then
i realized that it was using a directory under the /root
directory (because /root is ${HOME})  I found a bit in GIMP
where i was able to change pertinent directories, so I have
been manually creating stuff like /usr/home

kv_bsd# ls /usr
.Trash-root     bin             include         link to home    sbin
.gimp-2.2       compat          lib             local           share
.snap           games           libdata         obj             src
X11R6           home            libexec         ports

and the above .gimp-2.2 directory needed to make sure that GIMP
didn't crash.  now i have been encountering something somebody
warned me about running firefox with flash plugins.. it is crashing
sometimes.. well.. he warned me i don't know if i expect a complete
fix to that, but right now i am noticing

kv_bsd# du .mozilla/ | sort -n

. . .

4920    .mozilla/firefox/4dopg5yz.default/Cache
7346    .mozilla/firefox/4dopg5yz.default
7358    .mozilla/firefox
7368    .mozilla/

now i am thinking.. well..

there are a whole bunch of things in /root .files, er.. .directories
is it possible for me to switch these to /usr so i don't over flow?

kv_bsd# ls /root
.ICEauthority           .gnome_private          .realplayerrc
.Trash                  .gstreamer-0.10         .recently-used
.Xauthority             .gstreamer-0.8          .recently-used.xbel
.bash_history           .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2       .ssh
.cddbslave              .history                .thumbnails
.config                 .java                   .xsession-errors
.cshrc                  .k5login                Desktop
.dmrc                   .lesshst                firefox-bin.core
.evolution              .login                  index.html
.gconf                  .macromedia             npviewer.bin.core
.gconfd                 .mailcap                public_html
.gimp-2.2               .metacity               q
.gnome                  .mozilla                riese_resume.doc
.gnome2                 .nautilus               xorg.conf
.gnome2_private         .profile

would that be a good idea?
