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 have a Debian 4.0 machine running on an HP ProLiant DL380 hardware platform which is intended for use as a Secure FTP Server (upload and download). The Server has five 72GB hot swap SCSI disks which I configured in two arrays - the system partition is on two of the disks mirrored RAID 1
and during setup I set the Debian installer to user the entire disk, this being the first logical drive.
I configured the remaining three drives on a second RAID 5 array which combine to form a logical disk of about 200GB.
I installed and configured VSFTPD, created and installed a Certificate, and tested Secure FTP connection from my XP Workstation using WinSCP3.
So far everything works great.
Now, what I would like to do, is configure VSFTPD to use the 200GB logical drive for all the FTP activity/storage etc. rather than the default which I believe is under /var.
I suspect I must first configure the Server to mount this logical disk? How would I do that so it is always available when the machine boots up etc.? Next, where (how, what parameters) in the vsftpd.conf file do I configure the value to direct the user logins to the respective directory on the storage partition?
