    Add space to existing patition from a different drive

    Hi there!

    I have ubuntu 8.04 up and running perfectly on my cute little eeePC, and I love it!

    I'm looking into adding a 32gb corsair flash drive permanently into my eee (a bit of modding), and I would like it to be an seamless extension of the current 4gb SDD.

    Is this possible?

    how do you do this?

    the linux file system is confusing for me... where are things actually kept?
    what happens when you mount another hard drive? how do you "tell" linux to save stuff on the new hard drive?

    Thanks!

    You would have to set up the SSDs to use Logical Volume Management (LVM) that way all of your drive volumes will be seen as one by the OS. More information on setting up LVM can be found here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Se...ight=%28lvm%29

    You may also want to do a search at eeeuser.com in the forums and the wiki to see if anyone has set this up successfully.

    For those new to Ubuntu most of your answers can be found at help.ubuntu.com or ubuntuguide.org
