Is it possible to change where alf_data directory is created

Greetings.
Not sure if this is a config or installation question.

I currently have alfresco up and running.  I am preparing to do a new install on a different machine and would like to have the alf_data to be created on a different disk from the appserver.(hope I said that right)
Basically I'm looking to seperate the data store under alf_data from the other alfresco related stuff.

Currently I have this in the alfresco.sh file:
ALF_HOME=/disk4/xxxx 
and
APPSERVER="${ALF_HOME}/tomcat"

When alfresco starts up for the first time the alf_data directory gets created under ALF_HOME.

I would like to have the alf_data located on a different disk. Is that possible?
For instance if I changed the alfresco.sh file so:
ALF_HOME=/disk5/xxxxx
and
APPSERVER=/disk4/xxxx/tomcat

That would cause the alf_data directory to be placed in the ALF_HOME on disk5.

Is that the suggested or prefered way to accomplish this or is there somplace else I should be doing this?

Thanks,
steve.
