I would caution you about using persistent home and opt on a CF device. I personally would not do that. Having live filesystems will be high wear on the device. If you must, than at least make a link and move the browser cache to the ramdisk.  
As for your issue, it is possible, as I never run that combination. I recently made a testing grid for the beta testers. DSL has so many combination and perumutations that testing all is becomming most difficult.

Thanks for the words of caution, roberts.  I watched the files associated with firefox and I can see what you are talking about.  I did not notice any activity within /opt at least from what I was doing.  Is there any advantage to having /opt on another partition?  Does this save ram space?  My computer is maxed out at 256 meg.

I did a new frugal install to hda1 and put mdsl, opt, and restore on hda2.  Hopefully that will extend the life of my cf.  It is still very fast with this configuration.

Thanks again,
