as you can see /dev/hda6 is where i have my "/" partition. this is 90% full.
You can use the /dev/hda6 partition for /usr, or /var, or /home
(whichever is taking up the most space on /dev/hda8).
did you mean /dev/hda5? because that is the one i need to try to merge.
Ha! First you did it; then I did. Yes, I meant 5.
assuming you meant /dev/hda5 all along, i have a question here: how can
i mount /dev/hda5 onto /tmpusr when the "/" folder has not got that
much space? am i missing something here?
Because "/tmpuser" is a "mount point", pointing to an entirely different
partition, not a directory full of files on the partition containing the
name of the mount point.
i am using debian like i said - i can boot from the debian cd (i also
have a bootable floppy) - is this ok?
It can be done with a Debian CD, but not nearly as easily as with a
LiveCD. So much so that I'm not even going to begin thinking about
