on my own
i386 and amd64
Cannot install NetBSD on a machine with a 3TB or 4TB HDD with softraid and make it start. Even if I try to make partitions manually and work around the limit of the installer, then manually unpack distro and install bootloader the machine will not boot.

I run NetBSD on many servers in various companies and I am very satisfied with it, but the space limitation is devastating, I have to run other OS if I want a bigger hard drive, it's a shame!
Burn a CD with i386 or amd64, prepare softraid and try to install NetBSD on a machine with 4TB hard drive.
Install OpenBSD.
