Default [WebDav server] Add extra partition to existing space

For my son I'm building a fileserver under Debion 6, using WebDav.
It works really nice, I can access from other computers, my sons MAC, the allocated space as a local drive.
It is for only one virutal host, we want to keep all the data on one site.

Now I want to add extra hard disks for more space
Now I have
sda1 for system and the basic webdav root dir
sda2 for swap
sda3 is the one I try to add
but my son wants extra space:
Found/read a lot of how-to's on how to do it on the client side, but not on the server side.

Just mount an extra partition under the DocumentRoot /var/www/web1/web/
does not work. Mounting as such works, the partition/disk becomes only visible at the mounting point. I have no idea yet how to update the configuaration file.

I'm back in Linux since 10 years again... had a Red Hat server in the 90-ies working as a router too, to share early internet through (an expensive) cable, while still many people used a phone in conncetion... So I need to catchup some knowledge....

Suggestions or weblinks are welcome!

Maybe it is a good idea to make a partition of its own for WebDAV and use LVM for it: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_lvm

Thanks for your input.
Ok, that's a way it should work, but quite some work.... I will have to manage it without RAID as no RAID possible on this board.
In Ubuntu someone got it fixed just by the deault file, I just found, but I do not get it working yet. It seems so easy.....
