Maybe it is possible. I suppose during installation Fedora has to
recognize the external disk so that it can get the mountpoint /home. If
that is possible, then there is no problem using an external drive as
What I am absolutely not sure about, if it is possible to change the
mountpoint /home on a running system. Somebody else have to help about that.
I am thinking of changing the /home directory to another partition, but
yet have not found a solution how to do it on a running system, so I
personally would be interested in expert answer on that as well.
