I mentioned here the other day that I was planning to set up a Centos 6 system using a SSD for the system drive and a regular hard drive for a data drive. My plan is to have everything that doesn't change (much) on the SSD, such as /boot, /lib, /bin and so on. I want to put /tmp and /var and /home on the regular hard drive. Now that I'm at the stage of actually setting this up I have discovered that I don't understand enough about drive partitioning to make this work the way that I want it to. Perhaps I'm missing something obvious. I could create separate partitions on the SSD for /lib, /bin and everything else that I want to put there, then put / on the hard drive, but I would really prefer to put /boot and one other partition on the SSD, and one partition on the hard drive. How can I tell the system that I want /bin and friends on the SSD and /home and /var on the hard drive, but still have just one partition on each drive (plus /boot on the SSD)? If I create / on the hard drive and /ssd on the SSD, then putting bin on the SSD would make it /ssd/bin and that would obviously not be what I want to see. -- MELVILLE THEATRE ~ Real D 3D Digital Cinema ~ www.melvilletheatre.com www.creekfm.com - FIFTY THOUSAND WATTS of POW WOW POWER!
