Re: partitions and lilo

Hello Jaye,
? here

Well I guess I may have shared a partition or two. I'm not sure what exactly you
mean by "same root partition." But here's the [annotated] view from

[penguin@localhost penguin]$ df
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

[+++shared swap partition]

I'm a reinstall freak, which accounts for the inordinately large number of
partitions. Storm is mounted as /storm on my Mandrake, while Mandrake is
largely invisible to Storm [except for /home]. I placed my Staroffice 5.2 in
/opt, usable both ways.
