Adding a disk to an exsisting mount point


I am running Mandrake Linux 10.0 Official download version. Currently I have 2 hard drives installed. The second drives mount point is "/VAR/SSH" which of course contains files for an SSH server. My problem is that the 40GB drive at "/VAR/SSH" has become to small. I would like to add another 160GB drive and have it mount at "/VAR/SSH" to make the partition 40 + 160 = 200GB.

Is this possible? If so please reply with detailed instructions or links.

Thanks Everyone

One choice is Logical Volume Management (LVM)

Setup the new hard drive and format it.

Make a subfolder in /VAR/SSH ..lets say /VAR/SSH/subfolder. Make this the mount point of your new drive , by making the appropriate changes in fstab file.
Alternatively you can copy all the data from your 40 GB hard drive to 160 GB Hard Drive . and make it mount on /VAR/SSH (by making appropriate changes in /etc/fstab ) . Than you can mount your 40 GB Hard Drive mount on some subfolder of /VAR/SSH ..
This way your /VAR/SSH will have 200 GB of space.

Regards
Villie
