Security Debian Questions


  I have a few questions about how to actually implement some things
laid out in the Securing Debian How-To... 

  I read in there that it's preferred to set-up separate partitions for
mount points such as /tmp, /var/tmp, & /home.  I tried to do this on the
last debian install I did for my firewall.  I'm preparing to re-do this
machine for Etch (along with some hardware upgrades), but I ran into a
problem when trying to do this.  I don't remember the exact details, but
the problem I think revolved around not being able to properly boot-up
since the /tmp and/or the /var/tmp where needed during the boot, but not
being mounted yet.  Anyone experienced this problem before and/or have
an suggestion on how to get around this problem?
