You don't need to move any databases. Look at this structure:
/db4 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db4)
/db5 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db5)
/db6 (symlink to /data/disk2/mysql/db6)
If your mysql data directory is set to /data/disk1/mysql, the server will
pick up the symlinks there and use them as if they were just ordinary
