RE: [PLUG] Adding a second HD to a Linux system

Title: RE: [PLUG] Adding a second HD to a Linux system

If somehow, someone is able to write to your webserver doc directory
and fills up your drive, you will also have your home directories unable
to be updated (out of space), unless you partition that new drive into
two filesystems (one for each).

Can your system use USB drives? If so, I'd put the webserver docs on
an external USB drive. Since the that drive will take the most work out
it will most likely be the first to fail, so make it the easier one to
replace in the future.
