Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I want one directory which "contains" this information:
I fixed this writing a script which does a find in /hda1 and /hdb2 and creates the correct symlinks in /share. This works ok, but when I want to use this directory for some of the ftp users, it isn accesible because /share is outside the document root (which is /home).
To (try to) fix this, I used mount --bind. This shows the directory share, but the contents aren visible, because the original /hda1 and /hdb3 are outside the document root.
Is there a way to solve the problem? I don't want to copy the files either, since it's quite some data. It isn't neccesary for ftp users to write to this shared directory, just reading is ok.
Thank you, this makes my script more easy. The problem is, there are still links to a directory (/hda1 and /hdb3) outside of the document root. With mount --bind, this was no problem, with symlinks it is..
I think I'd just have to put the /share dir into the user's root.
