Okay here's my situation, I just got a new hard drive (200 GB its fabulous) and I'm trying to think of various ways to partition it. Here's my current HD and how its set up:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda6 9.3G 7.0G 1.9G 80% /
/dev/hda7 9.3G 8.7G 137M 99% /mp3
/dev/hda8 38G 36G 296M 100% /home
/dev/hda1 16G 14G 2.8G 83% /mnt/windowsC
Now here's my first questions, is there anyway I could partition my new hard drive, and let's say, in addition to having /dev/hda7 mount into /mp3, also have /dev/hdb1 mount into that same directory? I want to keep them divided up like this, by 10 GB isn't enough for my music. I have a feeling this is impossible, so here's my next question. What, do you think, would be the best way to move everything around to have it set up, without having to back everything up? I was planning on making my /mp3 directory ~40 GB and keeping my home directory the same. I was then going to make the rest of the new hard drive into a big multimedia directory, since I download lots of anime/movies/etc. and I need a place for all of it. / has enough since I have about 3 GB of music and videos that would go into another directory after everything is all straightened out. If I can't go with my original plan (mounting two partitions into one directory) could I copy everything from /home to the new harddrive and have /mp3 occupy all the space at the end of the first drive? And then just partition the new drive from there? What software would I need to use to make /mp3 occupy the remainder of /dev/hda? I'm rather new to adding hard drives under Linux, so any help/suggestions you would have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT^2: Okay, well apparently, I have to do mke2fs -j to make the ext3 filesystem. I figured it did that during fdisk, but I'm wrong, so I can mount the partition no problem.
