I am a relatively fresh Linux user and have having trouble figuring out how to accomplish something here.
I am running Fedora Core 4, using a single SATA hard drive. I want to enable quotas on my home directories (only 2 users on box) so that they cannot fill up the system. The 2 users, for the most part, will only be using vsftpd. Vsftpd is installed and configured perfecty, as is apache, a PBPbb message board and MySql.
During initial setup, the Fedora installer put everything (except swap) on one partiton, which I though was OK, as I figured I could resize and move stuff around later. I can't seem to find a way to do this due to having either an upsupported SATA drive or motherboard SATA controller. I've tried command line parted, a bootable SystemRescueCD and Gparted all to no avail. All the latest versions. None of them recognize my primary partition. I also found a tip via Google to try using an older version of Gparted (1.0), and still no luck.
So I then decided I was going to make a virtual filesystem for my home directory, I have that all set up and mounted, with all of my old data copied over to the /newhome directory using cp -pidRv. All is fine and /newhome mounts on bootup with quotas and everything enabled. Now, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to replace my current /home directory with /newhome. Since my system is all on one partiton, all the tutorials I have found discuss using /etc/fstab to change the existing /home to the /newhome after renaming them, and my fstab DOES NOT have an entry for my existing home, and I cannot rename it either.
So, could someone tell me how to go about this, or even if I am just approaching this completley wrong. I REALLY don't want to rebuild the machine just to get the partitions I initially wanted.
