Is it possible to birth a second harddrive to my linux installation and use it only for file storage and not worry about it being incorporated into my linux file structure. To better explain, in windows you can make a second drive your D: drive for instance. You can install all your programs on C: and cache files to D:. This spares you the performance loss you would suffer with a slower D: drive since it would be needed at runtime often. So what I am getting at is, is it possible for me to install a second drive and make it not be part of my immediate filesystem, something I would have to go into a directory to put files on and take files off?
