You could try to create symlinks but I guess that they will not work if
you mount the fs via nfs. A more robust way might be to mount the new disks
or dirs created on the new disk to the old hd.


mkdir /mnt/ide1/disk2
mount -o bind /mnt/ide3 /mnt/ide1/disk2

If that works creat a small script that is executed during the system boot.
