I believe that /stand/sysinstall treats the whole disk as new and will build file systems on all partitions rather than just partitions that have been tinkered with. I could well be wrong and /stand/sysinstall could be more sophisticated than I think, but I wouldn't bank on it short of going through the code. ////jerry > > 2. create links to /home/u01 from /u01, /home/u02 from > /u02.. > ln -s /home/u01 /u01 > Can I install Oracle this way? > > Since the second Q borders on DB and FreeBSD, I am > sending this to both lists. > > Thanks in advance... > Tk > > > > > > ____________________________________________________________ > Yahoo!
