It needs to be in /var/www/html as it is my webspace (as well as my mp3 
The clever thing to do would be to change /var so that IS the entire 80gb 
drive rather than part of the 10gb drive that
/ /boot etc are on - but that is a bit difficult for me to get my head 
around doing despite being told how about 20 times.

Files all go where they are supposed to, browsing the network drive works, 
its just the file space reporting that doesn't and hence the
prob with Itunes thinking there isn't any space. Pretty sure its a Windoze 
problem, there are some results on google for incorrect network drive 
sizes -
but not very helpful.
