Uhm, tech-net is not the right place to be discussing tis.

At NAS (part of NASA at Moffett Field in Mountain View), I was routinely
using MegaDrive RAID boxes, and they had 155 GB in them (well the exported
volumes were 155 GB - the box itself had two sides).

NetBSD had no problem. We made 32k/4k file systems on them and went to

fsck was SLOW.

Take care,
