Put the entire system on the first 4 gig drive.  It will probably only
use 400M unless you plan to install X.  That isn't normal for a server.
Create file systems on the other disks and mount them as /store0 and
/store1 or whatever.  You may not like putting anything on / but it
makes sense.  Then you can make directories in the /stores and use
symbolic links to create the space you need when you need it.

That's my idea.  Others may have better ideas.
