I just got two 120g (114 actually) maxtor drives.. Now I want to play
newfs on them with reasonable flags to get the most out of them.
One drive will mostly contain ~3M files, and the other one ~500M files.
Then I don't want zillions of inodes wasting capacity and speed.
newfs -g500m -i1m -b16k -f2k /dev/wd2e
gives me a flying system with almost no meta data waste.
It gives me kernel panics. I've played around quite a lot with newfs, and
now I ask you gods for help. Please give me some reasonable options for
