During install you can configure about every aspect of the disk creation
except for the inodes. Years ago under NetBSD 1.2, I had a news server,
the biggest problem I had was running out of inodes. With the help of
the mailing list I mucked through recreating the disk with more inodes.
I know, make multiple partions and split the data up, this is a real
pain, especially if one of them runs out of inodes (which did happen).
I just saw a message on the list that jogged my memory.
it's not there.
Just put it in the advanced disk configuration and mention it in the
readme for any news server admins to be.
