Running FC6 64bit with one Sata 400GB hard drive.
Getting another 500GB hard drive next week that I want to add. On the existing hard drive it is setup to dual boot windows, so has ntfs partition (sda1), /boot partition (sda2), / partition (sda3), extended (sda4), linux-swap partition (sda5), and a /home partition (sda6). Ext3 filesystem
I want to add the second sata and have it mounted in someway that it just adds to the capacity of the /home partition and the users don't know any different, its transparent to them that I have added it. They just see they have more space to utilise.
So I presume the drive will show up something like sdb. If I set the file system as ext3 and partition the whole drive as /home would this work or just cause a conflict.
Maybe I should be doing some raid setup, another thing I actually have never done but keen to learn.
I have a thing with even numbers so will be doing a Fedora 8 fresh install in a month or so.
Any help or comments on this will be muchly appreciated.
