I never created a separate /home partition -- made a 27G /. Decided last
night to clean up and rearrange drives. I've been using /home for all
kinds of storage -- mp3, ogg, local copy of hosted web site, etc. Ended
up having to move 22G of files and put /home on its own 40G drive. 

Don't feel like re-partitioning so now I'm using the extra space in /
for things like /tmp and /var/cache/apt.  

My current drive mess looks like this:

Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hdc7     ext3     27G  898M   25G   4% /
/dev/hdc3     ext3    9.2G  4.8G  4.0G  55% /debian
/dev/hdc1     ext3     19M  4.7M   13M  27% /boot
/dev/hdc5     ext3     14G  6.4G  6.7G  49% /usr
/dev/hdc6     ext3    4.6G  246M  4.2G   6% /var
/dev/sda1     ext3     17G   33M   17G   1% /scsi
/dev/hda2     ext3     28G   15G   12G  58% /mp3.mov
/dev/hdb1     ext3     37G   22G   14G  62% /home

hda is 40G, hdb is 30G, hdc is 60G, and sda is 18G. Still have some
re-arranging to do, just haven't decided what to move where. I like
having most of my free space in one area. With these drives I suppose I
should go to LVM -- does it allow free space to be concatenated across
physical drives?

Gotta figure out what the heck is sucking up /var too since I have
/var/cache/apt sitting elsewhere.
