did I get it right? You have four hard disks?
If so, place /, /var /tmp on indiidual drives. Make the fourth disk usr and mount the remaining space of the other three disks inside /usr/home.
Locate then stuff on the other three disks which you expect to be used in parallel with the /usr disk.
Of course, you can mount it anywhere else if you want.
