I want to use drbd for Samba and Samba already sits on /var/lib/samba in SuSe 
I created a new partition /dev/hda6 which i would like to use for Samba only. 
A few qusestion come to mind:

1. What happens if there are already some files in that 
directory,ie., /var/lib/samba ?

2. Will drbd handle files which are already in that directory ?  Or do i have 
to back it up and then copied it into the directory ?

Thanks for clarifying.
