additional hard drives - moving the //hda points

Postby gordhynes » Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:55 pm

Hey all, I followed the guide here: http://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Adding_ ... o_your_HDA to add additional hard drives... I have 3 now, soon to be 4, all with different sizes (250GB, 320GB and the OS at 40, adding a 500 soon). Anyway, the point is, the guide shows how to move //hda/files to a different mount point - but I have different stuff on different drives... /media/disk and /media/disk2 (/dev/sdc and /sdb/sdb respectively). How would I then separate these in the fstab file?

oh, plus the drives I put in there are formatted etc2, not NTFS, and should I be concerned about the mounting as in the post of adding the drive?

figured it out - had to add to the fstab the mount points, as pointed out above.. also had to setup symbolic links in //dev/hda/files to point to the *new* pictures and music (and whatever else of course) folders on the new drives.

thanks for the help!

i would've just mounted the disks where i wanted them to go, rather than worrying about sym links. (i.e. for music, i would've mounted that drive as /var/hda/files/music)
