Hi all

Next question after I got round my Installation problem. All working 
well now!! (Kubuntu 10.10)

I asked before about keeping my '/home' folder on my second hard drive 
and never got a definitive answer. I was worried the new clean 
installation would either overwrite my '/home' folder or I would wind up 
with two locations. In the end this is what happened - two locations!! 

1) How do I make the '/home' on the second drive the default?

2) At the moment the '/home' on the second drive is owned by root and 
there are no permissions available, (all grayed out). If I open a file 
it is "Read Only".
