I am new to Linux. I have a machine with two hard drives, the first one has 80GB and the second has 120GB. I am about to format this machine and install Linux.
I want to install all the main partitions (
/usr/, etc..) on the first HD (
sda) and mount the
/var partition on second disk (
sdb). Is this possible by specifying the partitions manually (if so, how?) or is this done automatically?
I am installing Ubuntu 12.04. Also, I won't do it but there is any problem to place
/boot on the second HD?
