Re: Adding Drives
by the way, there is nothing mystical about putting your new drive as "data"
in the root. you can put it anywhere you think it should be mounted. for
example, if this were to be a part of a database installation, say postgres,
you could conceivably put this in a directory called /db/postgres/flyters/.
in that case, you would:
i am assuming that the device containing db is hdb5, and that the directories
postgres/flyters reside on the physical device /dev/hdb5 (though this is not
necessary.) in this example, make sure data is mounted **after** db.
and in your fstab, put the line
/dev/hdb5 /db ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdc1 /db/postgres/flyters/data ext2 defaults 1 2
hope this did not muddle.... :<)
