You cannot create a file system larger than 1TB with the FFS code in
1.6.2. NetBSD 2.0 will include FFSv2 which has 64-bit block numbers,
which enable > 1TB file systems. Sorry, the changes are too large to
try and back-port to 1.6.2.
The remaining problem is, as you have noticed, the disklabel still uses
32-bit block numbers, giving a max of 2TB. We are planning for that
issue to be fixed in NetBSD 3.0.
