[leafnode-list] Moving Leafnode News Directory

I want to move my leafnode news directory from /var/spool/news to a 
different mount point on a new disk.  I planned on doing a cp first to 
be sure it worked then rm the existing directory and finally create a 
soft link to the new mount point.

I've created the new mount point but run into trouble when I try and cp 
over the existing news directory.  The size of the new directory becomes 
huge and I have to stop the cp.  I have no idea why this happens.  I was 
using cp -a to do the copy.

What is the correct way to do this?
