Create 2 partitions (whatever sizes you decided) format both as Mac OS X Extended.

Install Jag (about 10-15 minutes)

Enjoy :D

Are you sure ;)

Umm, I can't quite remember, this is from memory.

Open netinfo manager

ummm, I can't quite remember, can you post a screen, I can't even remember what it looks like.

It's something like click on your username at the bottom, find where it says your home directory and double click to edit.

sudo ditto -rsrcFork /Users /Volumes/OtherPartition/Users

sudo niutil -createprop / /users/username home \

/Volumes/OtherPartition/Users/username

found this command on the net. i guess i have moved the home dir to another partition.

now there's a Users(looks like a shortcut) in my first partition which links to the Users in another partition.

am i right?

I dought that. Mac's can't be used for everything. I probably will buy a Mac to replace my PC, but I admit that the Apple designs of its Laptops and Towers are pretty sweet.

Yup. Macs are good, A Performa 550 mac with OS 7 was my first computer so I'll always prefer Mac over a PC any day, though I'm sure some of you "hardcore" mac addicts would get rid of Mac in a heartbeat if it didnt have half the eye candy it does now :blink:

interesting Dazzla...do you actually miss your Mac?? it seems that you don't really have a preference. Not only are you able to handle multiple OS's, you seem to be willing to play with them.

Me...im a windows expert and am quite comfortable with linux, but I just refuse to fight with the OS so much.
