Okay, I wanted to install LMDE with everything on a 60GB ssd, with the exception of /tmp, /var, and /home. Those three I wanted on a 500GB hard drive.
However, the installer wouldn't let me do that, so I finally just did the install on the ssd.
So, now what I'd like to do, is move those three directories, /tmp, /var, and /home to the 500 GB hard drive.
I apologize if I've missed where this issue has already been posted.
I'm relatively familiar with the old way of setting up /etc/fstab with drive names like /dev/sda1 etc, but this fstab looks much different, so I'm a bit hesitant to just experiment.
I'm not dual booting. Just LMDE is being installed.
I'm not sure it's relevant in this case, but here is my system info:
