1. Adding a second hard drive -- file system layout advice?
I'll be getting a second drive (IDE) for my machine in a couple of days,
and am trying to decide how best to make use of it with FreeBSD. For
starters, here's my current setup:
1.6 gig IDE drive on wdc0
CD-ROM on wdc1 (wcd0)
I'm using the Boot Manager on wd0, with DOS/Win95 in the first partition
and FreeBSD in the second. At this time, of course, *all* of my FreeBSD
stuff is on this partition (root, swap and usr slices).
Ideally, I'd like to dedicate the entire new drive to FreeBSD, and move
all my existing FreeBSD stuff to the new (3.2 gig!) drive (which will be
slaved on wdc0 as wd1), but I'm not sure if it will be possible to
automatically boot into this. Is this possible? Would it make a
difference if I mastered it instead?
If the above is not possible, what then would be the best way to install
the drive into the current file system, so that, for instance, pkg_add and
other automated installers will use the new, roomier drive? Should I
maybe just move the usr slice over to the new drive and leave everything
else where it is?
As you can see, I'm in a bit of a conundrum over this. I want to be sure
to make the best choice when I install the drive so I don't have to go
back and redo it later.
Thanks very much for any ideas!
