It looks like I don't have much choice. I rent a server from
ServerBeach. Whenever I set up a machine myself, I use LVM.
Unfortunately, they did not subscribe to that philosophy, and thus I'm
stuck with the RHEL 4 default.
At the moment I'm looking into having a 4.2 symlink and putting 4.2 into
its own directory on the other disc.
Thanks for the LVM suggestion though. I was just hoping there was
another way I could use rsync so that it doesn't destroy the symlink
every time it links up. I guess I could run it once for each tree, but
then it wouldn't really be a true mirror, now would it? Ergh...
I'm still open to suggestions. :-)
