How to allocate a new directory to a particular partition?


When I create a new directory in the root how can I indicate that it should be allocated in the same partition as /home?

ALSO: The default allocation put 12Gb in /home and 33Gb in /usr. I'd like to reverse those numbers, putting 33Gb in /home and 12Gb in /usr. How can I do this?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
