You can tell mysql where to look for pretty much anything via my.cnf, or
rc.conf settings (i think you want to do the latter).
- the /var/db/mysql is the default, but by no means unchangeable. 

for example, mount your partition in /mnt/dbs , make a
directory /mnt/dbs/mysql  and point mysql to this. the .snap will be
in /mnt/dbs .
