For example, if we assume /dev/hda1 is /boot, /dev/hda2 is /, and
/dev/hda3 is swap and the "new" drive is a secondary slave:
# mkdir /new
# mount /dev/hdd2 /new
# mkdir /new/boot
# mount /dev/hdd1 /new/boot

Order matters. Lower partitions must be mounted before child dirs can be
created and stored on the parent volume.
