Ok, I have ubuntu (only) installed running from an SSD. It runs great. I also have a 1TB hard disk that I have formated and can get to mount in /media/hdd1 and can access it. What I want to do is have it mounted so the users in /home and the websites in /var/www (or anywhere else I put them) go to the hard disk. This is primarily going to be a web development machine where it will serve websites and web applications that I am working on until I post them to the net.

I tried mounting the hard disk to /home and gave every rwx privlages but it would not let me login after I rebooted. Any help, recomendations or pointers on where to look would be appreciated.
