1. Install GParted

2. Install the new drive

3. Open GParted and partition the new drive as you choose

   Be very careful to select the correct drive, it should be the large 
   empty one ;)

   Make sure you set a label for every (new) partition, e.g. depending 
   on what you intend to store on that partition. Labels should be 
   unique among all your partitions, choose carefully.

4. Add the new partition(s) to fstab with something like

    LABEL=big-downloads   /media/big-dl   ext4   defaults   0    1

5. mkdir /media/big-stuff

6. Test with 'mount /media/big-dl'

7. Reboot and check the new partition(s) are where you expect them to be

8. Enjoy!

Kind regards,
