To spread the load? To be able to use more than one disk? There are
several good reasons why this might be a good idea (always depending on
the situation at hand) nad I have to admit that I always found it
annoying that the NetBSD installer doesn't seem to know more than one disk.
Usually they are put into separate partitions on a single disk.
If you only have a singe HD in the computer, sure. But as it is, the
NetBSD installer only creates one bit file system by default and mounts
that as /. Personally I don't like that because I prefer to mount /
sync, /usr and /var mit softupdates and other file systems (like /temp
or /usr/build) async.
There is no good reason why these partitions should be on a single HD.
