... or mount the new HD as a subdir, as in:
As root, add to /etc/fstab
/dev/hd<new> /storage/videos/more ext3 defaults 0 0
As root, run:
Either reboot (the M$ way) or as root, run
If it returns w/o message, you have the new drive mounted. fstab will
automagically mount it in the future.
IIRC, in video storage, subdirs are automatically recognized.
