If youre using kvm you can put the vm's disk image anywhere you like

Hey guys,
Am trying to set up KVM on my Lenny AMD64 box and need recommendations from those who have set up KVM regarding storage memory.

Following is my df -h:

Filesystem            Size    Used   Avail   Use%  Mounted on
/dev/sda1             662M  252M  376M   41% /
tmpfs                     1.9G       0      1.9G   0% /lib/init/rw
udev                       10M 1008K   9.1M  10% /dev
tmpfs                     1.9G       0      1.9G    0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda9              216G     51G  155G   25% /home
/dev/sda8              373M    11M  343M     3% /tmp
/dev/sda5                4.6G   3.7G   726M   84% /usr
/dev/sda6                2.8G  393M    2.3G    15% /var

As you can see I have 2.3 G avail. in /var and want to install WXP virtually.
Would also, at a later date, want to possibly play w. Fedora or some other
Linux distro for grins.

What are recommendations for increasing memory in /var or what would
you do in this case.  I have been recommended to even use a symlink from
the storage area to a location where I have sufficient memory as in /home but
am concerned about debian's hierarchical limitations in that.

TIA for any recommendations.
