Are you implying that you don't have any more room for another
drive in the box? You should be able to put 3 hard drives and
a CD drive in there...

When I bought a new drive, since I was happy with my installation,
I just added it as /dev/hdc, and added the appropriate line in
fstab to mount it to /usr/local/data.
