Default Move /var to new drive on Debian Etch running ISPConfig


I'm running a Debian Etch server (build according to the Perfect Setup HOWTO) with the latest ISPConfig and recently added a second (bigger) hard drive.
Now I want to move /var to the new drive but obviously there are lots of processes accessing the dirs in /var constantly.

What would be the correct way to move /var?
How can I identify and stop those processes?
How can I be sure I've stopped them all?
Any suggestions on a new entry in fstab?

Some other remarks that might be helpful:
- I have no problem with a bit of downtime during the move.
- Please keep in mind I'm doing this remotely (ssh).
- Apart from the default "Perfect Setup" I also did this howto: "Server Monitoring With munin And monit On Debian Etch"

I hope anybody can guide me in making this a seamless move...
