    Unhappy Join Free Space on 2 Different drives (EEEPC with 2 SSDs)

    I have an eeepc 901 that has 2 SSD drives 4 GB and 8 GB.

    I Installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx", and I'm very happy with it.

    My only problem is that If I go to my home/ or "File System" I only have 168MB, but if I go to "16 GB File System" (mounted in /media/) I have 8.4 GB.

    My question is, Is it possible to join (something like unpartitioning, if that's even a word) the 2 disks?

    Or is it possible to put some parts of linux on one disk and others on the other?

    I would like to avoid having to reformat it.

    I'm a little unclear on how your partitions are set up on your computer, can you run

    Code:
    df -h
    in a terminal and post the output so I've a better idea. Note, if you've any external drives/USB sticks etc please remove them before running the above.
