Mysql on VM

I have Mysql database installed on red hat linux 5 VM and need to create image file.

How do I create 25 GB image file to store Mysql data and log files, each in separate disk partition?

5 gig will be for log files and will be mounted at /home/mysql/logs.

20 gig will be for data files and will be mounted at /home/mysql/data.
