This seems like a new-user-question, so I'll try to give a simple answer :)

Let's assume you have this partitions

100 MB     /dev/hda1
400 MB     /dev/hda2
[maybe a few more, doesn't matter here]

You mount the partitions:

/dev/hda1  ->  /
/dev/hda2  ->  /usr

Now if you put a file under /usr (or one of it's subdirectories) it's
stored on the /dev/hda2 partition, which happens to be 400 MB. Just what
you wanted :)
