You partitions appear to be ordered on the disk thusly: /, swap, /tmp, /var, /usr, /home Because of this, you can't repartition /var and /home without also repartitioning /usr. At that point, you're almost reinstalling. What you'd have to do is back up /var, /usr, and /home, then repartition those three, and then restore to the new /var, /usr, /home. You could always symlink the directory in /home to some location on /var to get most of what you want. See 'man ln'. -- Bill Moran Potential Technologies http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
