mounting folders to partitions?


Is I issue this request on my sustem, does it link all storgae for the squid folder onto the sda2 partition?
What happens to storage on the /var folder, which is already mounted on the sda3 partition?

mount /dev/sda2 /var/spool/squid

[root@]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 4.8G 1.5G 3.0G 34% /
/dev/sda3 4.8G 1.5G 3.1G 34% /var
/dev/sda1 76M 23M 50M 32% /boot
tmpfs 465M 0 465M 0% /dev/shm

/var/spool/squid would be on sda2, and everything else under /var would be on sda3

True, strictly speaking. However, should the OP have data currently under /var/spool/squid (on sda3), it will be inaccessible once the mount for sda2 is issued.
Such data needs to be copied over before the mount for sda2.
