How to use different content database for a particular spweb.

I am using sharepoint 2007, I need to use different content database for a particular site.

For example:

I have several spweb in a site collection:

http://www.mysharepointsite/us-en/pages/index.aspx

http://www.mysharepointsite/minisite/pages/index.aspx

http://www.mysharepointsite/socila/pages/index.aspx


I want the site minisite to use a different content database. How can I do this.


Note:
minisite has many subsite.


Please let me know if my question is confusing.

You can have each Site Collection have its own Content Database. An SPWeb is not a Site Collection though so let's be sure we're talking about the same thing.

On the issue of moving an existing Site Collection to a new Content DB;

Agreed with Jamie's comments.  The entire site collection must be in the same database, you can't split up the sub-sites (spweb's).

If I create a new site collection, I can point this to the backup database? If possible, can you tell me how?

The guidance for re-attaching a content db was detailed on the other thread you have going.
