Why not mount /usr? As I understand it, the usual criterion is that only things that are necessary to get the other partitions mounted go in the root partition; everything else goes under /usr. I don’t know if this is the case with FreeBSD, but I don’t know of any other. -- Benjamin M. A’Lee || mail: b...@subvert.org.uk web: http://bma.subvert.org.uk/ || gpg: 0x166891C7
