As a brand new linux/debian user (with help from this list) I have
installed debian from downloaded disks and used the 12-96 InfoMagic disk
set to dselect packages. I have configured and compiled the kernel (I
think/hope). Now when I boot I get a message " no directory /home/(my
account name). Logging with home ="/". When I look in /home there is no
diectory for my account name although there was before the recompile
effort. When I try to mkdir home/(my account name) I get a "mkdir : cannot
make directory 'home/(my account name)' : Read only file system". I have
tried both as root and in my account. I can create a file in my account
name in the "/" directory. When I ls -l /home the result is "total 0".
TIA and aloha.
