partitioning /var


Hi
below was one of my pop quiz question, I couldnt come to solution and really curious about the answer.
Any help would be appreciated...

You are the systems administrator of a mail server that services approximately 3,000 users. 2,000
users access their email via a POP-3 service, while the remaining 1,000 users access their email via a
Unix mail reader. Recently users have complained about speed of disk access, so a new 10 gigabyte
disk has been purchased for the mail server to go with the other 10 Gb disk already in place.
How would you partition out /var with these two separate 10 gigabyte disks? Note, these disks will
be on the same SCSI controller, but will not overload the SCSI bus in any way.

Why the need for a double post?

You seem to remember all of the questions on your pop quiz, and don't seem to have answered any of them.

Something tells me that these are actually homework questions and you would rather we did your
work than try to answer them yourself.
