Hello, during a clean install, can we choose to put the / on a hard drive and the / home on another? My laptop has a ssd that I dedicate to the system and a hard drive sata that I reserve for the / home

Cool! So if I understand correctly, I can redo an install over the existing clean installation without losing my data?

Technically there's no reason to do a reinstall if all you're doing is to move a directory to a different partition. You're free to copy the files over to the new partition, and then edit the /etc/fstab file to point to the new location, remove the files on the current partition, and reboot.

Yes, it's true. I just wanted to know if it was possible. Thank you so much for your response so fast! ;-)
