Partition full ...

Hi friends,
My / partition is full. I do not have separate partition for /usr
Here is the /etc/fstab

#entry for /dev/sda5:
uuid=d90c643c-eb13-11dd-892a-79860145e77 / ext3 relatime 1 1

#entry for /dev/sda7 :
uuid=9ccf1df0-8107-11dd-ad34-1b2b8fd334e6 /home ext2 relatime 1 2 /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom auto umask=0,users,iocharset=utf8,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

#entry for /dev/sda1 :
uuid=A8D00D65D00D3AD8 /mnt/win_c ntfs -3g defaults 0 0

#entry for /dev/sda2 :
uuid=387028B2702878B0 /mnt/win_d ntfs -3g defaults 0 0

#entry for /dev/sda3 :
uuid=CE1434A614349405 /mnt/win_e ntfs -3g defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

#entry for /dev/sda6 :
uuid=9cabfeba-8107-11dd-a5c9-39c728f9dfe6 swap swap defaults 0 0

friends well i do not have entry for /usr in fstab since it is mounted under / so how can i make a new entry for /usr
can i do it as follows

cp -pRP /usr/* /mnt/win_c/usr/

(that means to a folder in windows already mounted partition)
