    Create partition in the new drive using fdisk
    http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Partition/...titioning.html

    Once the partitioning is completed, you need to create a filesystem on the specified drive.

    mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1

    Then you can mount this drive as /home2

    mount /dev/sdb1 /home2

    Yes, DirectAdmin should detect the new /home2 partition and please make sure that you do a setting in DirectAdmin to host new domains in /home2 partition.
