trouble installing to 1.5TB drive
I have an Areca raid card (5 drives, RAID6) that has a 1.5TB volume on it.
It appears to be seen this way, as the install program says it is
Bios # cylinders heads sectors total sectors GB
------ --------- ----- ------- ------------- ----
0x81 1024 141 48 2929686528 1499
It also says something about the geometry probably being something like 1023,
255, 63, but I don't know if those numbers are relevant.
When I tell it to use the entire hard drive, it now thinks the NetBSD partition
is -666641M. This is clearly some kind of mistake.
Also, if I try to create partitions, it wants me to reduce the partition size
by 666866M before I have done anything.
Now, it appears if I create two disk slices out of the 1.5TB space, that it
will use a smaller than 1TB slice OK. My questions are: "is there some way to
get it to correctly recognize the entire space?" and "If I slice it smaller,
will those smaller slices be correctly calculated so that I can use the full
space within them?"
