Re: Partitioning a second hard disk

How about, after partitioning, mounting the partition of the
new disk with a filesystem as /home-extended. Create directories
under there for each of your users; e.g. /home-extended/alexis and
then, make a symbolic link from /home/alexis/extended pointing to
/home-extended/alexis. Then you get access to the second disk in a
reasonably comfortable way.
