How you define your partitions and what mount flags you use is very much dependant on what you're using the box for. Only you can make this descision. > And what if I have an HW RAID controller.

It's good because.... Making a slice for /etc is a 'bad' idea. Kernel can't read all the rc scripts if they're not on root slice - not to mention /etc/fstab (thus not being able to find any other slices to mount). > 2. mount / as RO.............. This will do a pretty good job of making it impossible for anyone to change their pass (as /etc has to be on root slice) > 3. mount /user as noexec+nosuid..........." > If by this you mean /usr, this will break just about every application on the system (most binaries that aren't essential to core system live in /usr/(s)bin (or /usr/local/(s)bin if you install stuff yourself). A lot of these need to be suid/sgid too. > I think & hope these rules are well-known, but one must know > where to look for.... Nope. Every box I setup has different slice schemes - its very dependant on the usage. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
