    You mean more partition space? You could use something like partition magic, but I prefer to do something like this:
    1. Purchase a new hard-drive
    2. Temporarily mount your new hard drive under /mnt
    3. Use pax to copy data from old /usr to new /mnt partition
    4. Edit your /fstab and mount your old /usr as /usr.old and mount the new disk at /usr
    5. Reboot to test your new fstab. Voila!
