Hello All,
   I'm hoping for some help with the following problem. I've got RH6.1
w/sendmail and IMAP running. I want to setup a RAID for users to help
speed up disk I/O. Here's the problem. Mail is stored in
/var/spool/mail/[username]. User create folders, like those created in
pine to seperate saved mail, are stored in /home/[username]. I am not a
person of extreme cashflow so I have 4 9.1G Scsi disks which I want to
store the info on. This means only one dir struct. I am looking for a way
to put both of these on the same dir. Pref /home/[username], purely for
backup reasons. Currently I am feeling either stupid of clueless, b/c I
can't find any place that describes someone doing this sort of thing and I
would think it to be kinda common. Anyone????
