I have the following two lines in etc/mtab:
/dev/hda3 /home ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda2 /usr ext3 rw 0 0
hda2 has much more disk space than hda3, and I would like to mount /home on hda2 and /usr on /hda3. Is this a matter of simply changing the two lines above to the following and then restarting the system?:
/dev/hda3 /usr ext3 rw 0 0
/dev/hda2 /home ext3 rw 0 0
Additionally, it is not clear to me why Linux would assign by default much more space to /usr than /home. I am currently using /home for shared and archive directories, which is why I am needing more space. Is there any reason why I should /home/ or /usr, or even a different place altogether, for storing this kind of files? Is this merely an organizational issue or more than that?
