Subject description: /mnt/home is symlinked to /
 

I have Linux Disto in /sda6.
I have installed puppy412 in /puppy4 subdirectory by copying files from CD and modifying grub menu to load it
Code:

rootnoverify (hd0,5)
kernel /puppy4/vmlinuz pmedia=atahd psubdir=puppy4 nosmp
initrd /puppy4/initrd.gz

My pup_save.2fs is also located in /puppy4.
I want to use extra sfs files. My /mnt/home is a symlink to /initrd/mnt/dev_save that points to the root / of sda6. I can put sfs files there. Can I modify a setup to symlink /mnt/home to /puppy4 and put sfs files there?

I never thought of it.

I put the foobars_xxx.sfs in the puppydir and symlink them to /

Example: from /initrd/mnt/dev_save (which is /mnt/home), but I avoid using two symlinks this way, meaning /mnt/home would be one symlink

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 2008-11-28 18:44 devx_400.sfs -> dingo/devx_400.sfs

Thanks for the solution. I think it wouldl be more logical that *.2sf files and extra *.sfs files (and pup_xxx.sfs) are located in the same directory.

I think so, but this way they are. The symlink option being available only to those with real Linux partitions so we can do what we want.
