When I would set up a W$ NT box, I would always set up a different
drive (D) for the apps and dta, with the OS residing on C. This way,
if, or should I say when I had to reinstall toe OS, I could do it to
drive C, leave D alone, and not lose my data. (Had to reinstall most
programs though).

This saved a lot of time. Now, my experience with Suse has been great,
especially with ext3, but my paranoia want to know if this can be done
on Linux, so to speak.

Any suggestions?

TIA

Harry G
