Sharing Files


I have a samba server running on a red hat 9 sharing several folders. Those folders are on separated hard drives (e.g. Hard Drive 1 - folders 1 2 & 3, Hard Drive 2 - folders 4 5 & 6).

So what the user sees is:

//server/folder1
//server/folder2
//server/folder3
//server/folder4
//server/folder5
//server/folder6

What i want to do is to have a main shared folder and put folders 1 to 6 in it, so that the user sees:

//server/main folder/folder1
//server/main folder/folder2
//server/main folder/folder3
//server/main folder/folder4
//server/main folder/folder5
//server/main folder/folder6

I could do that easily if they all where in the same hard drive, but they are not :P. I think there is a way of doing it with virtual directories or links, but i have no idea of how to do it.

Any ideas ?

Create the main folder on the server, put the folders 1-6 in it and share it. I think thats what you want, wright?

I could do that if the folders where small enough to fit in a single hard drive, but each folder is 40 Gb at least.

I windows i would make a main folder and put links to the other folders there, but i don't know how to do that (or something like that) in linux.
