Substitute the Ihome/ entry with Ihomel servernamel or Ihomel. You can also configure a heavily used partition such as Ihome between the lusr and root partitions, thereby reducing the amount of distance the heads need to move in between requests. This configuration can increase response times but may not be noticeable because disk access times have decreased dramatically.

Each time the system boots, the files in /tmp are removed while directories under /tmp are preserved. The examples above are some good reasons to increase the size of the root partition, or create separate /tmp and /var partitions.
