Re: reclaiming space from redmond!

ok i have cleared my d: drive and am ready to format it to ext2.

a current "df" gives:

mantra:~# df -hT
Filesystem    Type    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda8     ext2    3.8G  3.5G  151M  96% /
tmpfs        tmpfs    189M     0  189M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6     ext2     45M  5.3M   37M  13% /boot
/dev/hda1     ntfs    6.9G  6.2G  657M  91% /mnt/c
/dev/hda5     vfat    7.8G  301M  7.5G   4% /mnt/d
/dev/hdb1     vfat     28G   21G  7.1G  75% /mnt/g
/dev/hdb5     vfat     28G   23G  5.0G  83% /mnt/h
/dev/hdb6     vfat     28G   15G   14G  52% /mnt/i
/dev/hdb7     vfat     31G   25G  6.6G  79% /mnt/j
/dev/hdc   iso9660    4.4G  4.4G     0 100% /media/cdrom0

i just have a quick follow-up question:

once i create a linux (ext2) partition of /dev/hda5 (my old d: drive)
can i further partition /dev/hda5 into two because i want to move both
/usr and /home to it (8gb is too much for /usr alone and i expet a lot
of mails, docs and apps in my /home!)?

do i need to specifically mount /usr and /home to the new partition
(/dev/hda5) or is it enough if i just "mv" the folder and change fstab
settings. can one have two folders (/usr and /home mounted on the same
/dev/hda5 - if not then how to partition further to make it happen?)

any help would be much appreciated - i am becoming savvy with linux but
partitions still scare me!
