reconfiguring harddisk space


Hi everybody!

I have not so much space to my love linux system and then i have stole a little from the windows one.
Now i have another partition, but what i want to do is to tell to the system that all the new software that has to be installed it has to do at the new partition created.

How can i tell this ?

I can't simply mount the /usr folder on thenew one, becasue in fact i have not a lot of hard disk space, and the new one is not too much big, arroud 500MB. Then all the programs I have installed i want to rest where they are and the new ones at the new partition.

Thanks.

PD: My df -h output

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 1.9G 1.7G 102M 95% /
tmpfs 93M 0 93M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6 52M 432K 52M 1% /mnt/shared
/dev/hda5 458M 8.1M 426M 2% /mnt/newspace

Truthfully with the amount of space you have total and the amount you have available, your probably better off expanding onto a new larger hard drive. You can copy either your existing setup like /usr to a new drive, /home and so on to the new drive as you don't want / to fill up and its not a good setup to have everything under / on the same partition..
