    I am setting up an old PowerMac G4 as a server in my house but am having some trouble doing what I want. Being anal I want to have all of the remotely accessible information (ftp files/web pages) for the public all on a separate partition on the computer.

    Is this possible, and if so how. If not I will just stick with the built in Public and Sites folders.

    Thanks

    Partition your hard drive maybe?

    I'm assuming you DON'T have a copy of OSX server, or this would be extrordinarily easy--the server I run is set up this way.

    As for the non-server OSX, download a copy of Sharepoints; it lets you specify specific directories to be shared, so will get you at least part way there. I don't think it handles directing the built-in Apache webserver to the right place, however, so you'll need to manually modify config files to get that working right. I haven't done this, but it is possible.
