    How would I go about using CPanel on a server with multiple hardrives? Is there a way to tell CPanel to use both /home (on drive 1) and /home2 (on drive 2) for creating accounts or is the second drive pretty much useless?

    Thanks.

    A second drive is far from useless. Use it for /backup, /usr, /var and stuff.

    I realize that. I just mean from a user storage perspective. Ideally I'd like to to have a /home and a /backup on one drive. and a /home2 and /backup2 on the other drive. The /backup would actually hold compressed backups of /home2 and /backup2 would hold the inverse. This would give me a little more fault tolerance should one drive fail, not to mention actually maximize my user storage space.
