RE: Adding a new HDD - how do I move /var/lib/mysql ?

Install new hard driver.

Create a partition
Fdisk /dev/hdx
Add to fstab
As /dev/hdx /mnt/hdx 
Format it
Mkfs /dev/hdx
Mount /dev/hdx
Stop mysql
Mv /var/lib/mysql /mnt/hdx
Link it over
Ln -s /var/lib/mysql /mnt/hdx/mysql
Start mysql

Means you can move other things into it if you run out of space again.
