I have a second large storage hdd mounted in Ubuntu in /media/storage. I would like my home directories for me and all future users of the system to be located on this storage drive as well.
I was thinking that the easiest way to accomplish this was to move /home to /media/storage/home and then create a symlink so that /home points to /media/storage/home. Would this work okay?
The only reason I ask, is because I know that a users home directory has a lot of special configuration information stored in it, so I didn't know if this would screw up anything on the system.
Are there any better alternative methods to relocating the home directory?
