If I use
mkdir /debian_home /data
, will that not create sub-directories within my home directory, rather
than the partitions being mounted as partitions?

if I need to use mkdir to create mountpoints for them, be set up as
mkdir /mnt/debian_home /mnt/data .
Is that wrong?
Oh, and, with the actions that I have gone through, in trying to deal
with this, I have activated the root account, so that, whilst Ubuntu
has some deviations from what I understand to be Linux standards (eg,
using UUID's rather than device paths, in fstab), I can now use the root
account for system maintenance, rather than sudo (which I really do not
like, and regard as a security risk), which makes the system a bit more
consistent with what I understand to be standard Linux.
