Mounting new harddisk

I've installed gentoo linux so far and now I want to install gnome and some other nice X tools ...

The main problem is that my diskspace is a little low.
I got a new harddisk and fdisked it but where to mount the new space? Can I mount it to / and the linux filesystem will automatically use my old and my new one? How does it work?

Thanx so far ...

but you can mount it at say /mnt/newdrive
then copy all of /usr to the root of newdrive, then
change your fstab to mount the new drive as /usr
