I had to plug another drive into melanoma to fit -current and the 1.0
release, but now I have heaps of space. Check this out:

Filesystem  1K-blocks    Used   Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/wd0a        9951    6820    2633    72%    /
/dev/wd0e       31847     790   29464     3%    /var
/dev/wd0g       48499   41677    4397    90%    /usr
/dev/wd1a      326575  151376  158870    49%    /home
/dev/wd0f      212419  119354   82444    59%    /home/ftp/.../NetBSD-current

So, if anyone else wants to setup a 1.0 and -current mirror, you'd need
about 300MB + room for the OS. You'd probably also need another 150MB
if you're mirroring the arch -current binaries (which I'm not at this
time since 1.0 has been released and outdated it)
And, if you have XFree86, add another 100MB or so. (I'll compile up
a version on the weekend and put it up for FTP)

(I've also just plugged another 4MB into the machine (upto 8MB) and
the difference in performance is very obvious :)
