I'm only telling you this to save you some grief. If recompiling a
kernel is too advanced for you, then LVM and RAID are way way over your
head and you really need to do a lot of learning before you get in to
either of them. I would consider both LVM and RAID to be at least as
advanced topics as kernel compilation. There are a whole lot of factors
to deal with and neither technology is something that you can approach
without adequate preparation and experience.
I mean no offense by this. I just think you should know that it's
probably very unwise to go messing about with your users' files when you
don't know exactly what you're doing.
What I recommend doing is getting a single disk that's big enough to
hold what you need, and finding other uses for the smaller disks.
