So, if I understand you right, you have space left on your 2GB hd, and
you would like to move your /usr partition there?
1.) Allocate space on that 2nd hard disk:
You can also use /stand/sysinstall for this.
2.) Shutdown to single user mode
3.) Assuming that your new user is mounted on /mnt/usr.new, the
following command will copy everything from /usr there.
# tar -cpf - -C /usr . | tar xpvf - -C /mnt/usr.new
Please also refer to the tar(1) man page!
3.) Now edit /etc/fstab and make your new copy the default (the best is
to write the partition of the old /usr on a piece of paper, or keep it
as a comment in /etc/ftab.
4.) Done. Unmount /mnt/usr.new and mount it to /usr. There isn't even a
need to reboot :-)
