Thanks for the reply! However, using symlinks (ln -s?) doesn't quite fit my purpose. I might not have expressed me clear enough, I'll try from a different angle.
I want a directory, say "really_big_storage_dir" where users can store files.
Lets say I've partitioned the disks I want for this purpose already and mounted them as /disks/drive1, drive2 and drive3.
If I use symlinks (ln -s /disks/drive1 /really_big_storagedir, ln -s /disks/drive2 /really_big_storagedir .. etc) this would obviously cause /really_big_storage_dir to contain the links drive1, drive2 and drive3.
Now this is what I try to get around. I want /really_big_storage_dir to be a directory that spans over the three drives, but I don't want the directory to be divided into three.
I would like files to be stored onto the next disk when one is filled. This is where it ties into RAID0 I guess. But I am curious wether it can be achieved without
using a stripeset. Is it possible?
edit: btw, I'm getting married in Cape Town next month with my South African fiance
