  2. would recommend adding a bridging router that would be connected to both networks. You can use pretty much any router with at least two Ethernet ports and that can run aftermarket firmware (like Tomato, OpenWRT, DD-WRT, and so on).

    All you have to do in the router that connects the two networks it this:

    Configure each of two Ethernet ports into different VLANs.

    Assign each VLAN an IP address in one of your two networks.

    Connect each port to the network that port's VLAN has an IP address in.

    Make sure the router is configured to do routing. (This is the default in most distributions.)

    Then, to make it work, you'll have to log into each of your two existing routers and add a route. For example, if the bridging router is and, you'll need to add these two routes:

    In the 192.168.1.x network, a route to with a gateway of

    In the 192.168.2.x network, a route to with a gateway of

    Note that computers in the two networks will be in different broadcast domains, so they won't easily discover each other. Depending on what tools you plan to use, there are various ways around this. For example, if you use Windows networking a lot, you can use a program (like nmbd) that synchronizes browse lists across the two networks.
  3. n order to reclaim the /home directory, edit the /etc/auto_master file and comment out (or remove) the line with /home in it. You'll need to reboot after this for the change to take effect (or, per nilbus' comment, try running sudo automount -vc). This works with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard). Your millage may vary for different versions, but it should be similar.

    As noted on that forum post, you should also be aware that Time Machine automatically excludes the /home directory and does not back it up.
