Re: FC2 and FC1 and common home



Hi Michael,

Specific for FC1 and FC2 is the SELinux context information that needs
to be set on newly created files
(http://people.redhat.com/kwade/fedora-docs/selinux-faq-en/).

In general the problem with using multiple distributions/releases on one
system is that you don't want the applications to overwrite
configuration data from the other installations. This is why I use a
/data partition instead of /home. Symlink /home/user/data to /data/user.
This way you can share data between installations, but need not be
afraid that configuration information gets ruined.
