I want to create an instance to run a webserver under EC2 using ubuntu 10.10. That's actually quite easy, but what I'd want to change how that virtual disk partitioning is made. Using the wizard they provide you are able to charge a given virtual file system, so the /var and the /tmp folders are on the same partition as root.

I've thought about creating two block storage volumes and mount them as if they were those two partitions. I think that should work but, by now and because I just want that instance for web testing purposes, I was wondering if it's possible to just take that microinstance and repartition it, as if there where 3 different partitions (/root, /var and /temp).
