Default Multiple Hard Drives?

I am setting up a new server with Ubuntu 8.10 and ISPConfig 3. My server is a IBM Xserver 235 with a scsi controller. I have one 34 gig hard drive currently installed. Is it going to be possible to install another drive for use with web hosting? If so, how is this done? Thanks.

or you can mount the new harddrive just as /var/www for example... then all data will be saved on the new harddrive...

If I do this will the data still be read from the original drive's /var/www or would I have to copy everything to the new drive?

you'll have to copy it over and make sure that owner ship and permissions are preserved.
