Hey everyone,

I'm thinking of installing an MMORPG, but I want to install in on my data partition (as my home is only 12 gb). Is there any way for me to do this, I've noticed things default install to home.

Thanks, Kaye

Almost all programs in Debian based distros go in /usr. It is the config files that wind up in your /home. Having said that, you can compile your own and put them anywhere you want, program files as well as config files.
