Just about a month ago, I had a 14gb RAID box attached to one of my 
NetBSD systems.  It was the type that appears as a single SCSI disk to 
the host.  There was a single filesystem taking up the entire space.  We 
can do that because we use 64-bit off_t's, as opposed to the 32-bit off_t 
(well, long) that SunOS used.
