As I have a 5500, I would like to install all my apps, and when I eventually change ROM, /home, on the SD card, so that I don't loose everything in case of total power loss.

My question is, how does this work? I know I can install the apps on the SD card, and they work just fine, but is a link created in RAM so that the device knows I have apps on my card? If so, then surely I will lose the links if I lose power, and I'd have to recreate them.

Also, I know that I need to use a different ROM to move /home to the SD card, but what about conf files that I edit such as /etc/pcmcia/wlan-ng.conf? Is there any way to avoid having to re-edit them in the event of total power failure?
