I wan't to use S-M-S mainly as torrent box which I plan to accessing it from windows machine, and maybe later as http server for my web pages.

I have installed S-M-S yesterday on a hdd that have 40 GB. I have made 1,5 GB for root (hdb1) 512MB for swap (hdb2) and the space that left is for data (hdb3). I wan't to put here all the files that are not relevant to system. (web pages, ftp shares, torrents...)

Is this partitioning sheme good, I can delete hdb3 and repartition the left space again. I have put /home to hdb3, but now that I look, those files are stored somewhere else.

What is the best way to accomplish this task?

I'm in the beggining of learning linux server, and this distro is excellent point to start with. Thank you.

You don't need to move anything just reconfigure Samba and TorrentFlux.
Samba shares are located under /var/smb/samba
Just edit /etc/samba/smb.conf to your needs e.g.
create a folder samba under /mnt/hdb3 and alter
Code:
[Samba @ SMS]
path = /var/smb/samba/
read only = no

to
Code:
[Your Share]
path = /mnt/hdb3/samba
read only = no

Do a
chmod -R 777 /mnt/hdb3/samba
chown -R nobody.nogroup /mnt/hdb3/samba
and you are ready to share your folder.

Same thing apply for torrentflux, create a folder tflux on /mnt/hdb3
login to torrentflux go to->admin>settings and change 'path'
If you are having problems let me know

Thank you for your solution, but I did that in other way, as it seemed to me a bit simpler. I used symbolic link for /var/smb that points to partition hdb3.

/var/smb@ -> /mnt/hdb3/smb//

TorrentFlux works without any issue.
