Hi all, I am considering switching from Debian Linux to FreeBSD. I am wondering if at install time, sysinstall is able to allow me to keep "/home" from my Debian installation. "/home" on Debian is currently a separate partition in its own right, mounted as RXT3. I only have the one hard disk in my machine.
So, questions: 1. Can the installer be told to not touch "/home" at install time (I appreciate I would have to ensure I mapped the current /dev/hda2 terminology to slices in BSD parlance) 2. Does the fact that this is an EXT3 partition matter? (I have read FreeBSD supports ext2, and ext3 is just ext2 with a journal, so it can be mounted as ext2 if needed). 3. Is it possible/beneficial to convert this to UFS once FreeBSD is installed? Thanks in advance for any help.
