Creating Filesystem for..


As of now, I want to make the directory var on my root account to be a filesystem of itself so i can implement a quota. Does anyone know how to do that?

Roughly you need to:
1) Create your new partition
2) Put a filesystem on it
3) Go into single user mode and copy the contents of /var to your new partition
4) Add an entry to fstab to mount the partition on every boot
5) Mount your new partition as /var
6) Go back into your usual runlevel
