You don't need to.  The disk scheduler in MythTV will automatically 
allocate recordings to disks based off recording load and free space.  
If you have multiple folders on the same disk, it will recognize them as 
such based off the total and free space.  You can also adjust the 
scheduler to operate only based off load, or only based off free space.
