Using PostgreSQL 8.0, the newly introduced "tablespaces" solve all this:
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/interactive/manage-ag-tablespaces.html

Using PostgreSQL 7.4, you can relatively easy create single databases on
different drives. However, separating out single tables or indices
involves some black symlink magic. See google and
http://www.postgresql.org/docs/7.4/interactive/manage-ag-alternate-locs.html
