So if you try to mount /usr/tomcat before /usr you are going to run into problems. You will either have a problem of the mount point missing, or running into problems of mounting a file system over the mount point. I know you can hide an existing directory tree, but I have never tested what happens if you are hiding mount points. (Does it generate an error with mounting /usr, or does /usr/tomcat become inaccessible?) Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
