I’ve posted previously on setting up my laptop to dual boot between Kubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 but have run into one snag, I don’t know enough to fix.
As an aside, I ran into a lot of problems with the program I needed for work running in 64-bit version, so I am working reloading to 32-bit.
What I would like to do if possible, is to share my home directory between the two boxes. Part of the reason is I use an XP VM and shared folders to work on files in Office 2007 and outside of the XP VM and connect via shared folders.
So my /home/jonathan/Documents folder is configured as a shared folder on VM and then I can write statements of work, and utilize other work related apps, and then if I was sharing my home, I could access the same files whether I am running RHEL or Kubuntu.
Is it just as simple as creating /home in a seperate paritition and using the same username on RHEL and Kubuntu? Or is there some magical voodoo I need to do?
Hope this makes sense
