adding a new partition

view full story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Greetings: I want to upgrade to 11.2 from 10.3. I was looking at disk usage and noticed the last time I set up my system, I allocated too much space to the / partition. It's only 50% used, while /home is 83% used. Rather than resizing and messing up /home, I thought about just adding a new partition created from the / partition. Call it say /data or something and put music, pics, pdf files and such there. But, would it be automatically mounted and what about permissions? Any ideas? thanks, reddogg (Distributions)
