I have a 50 gig Seagate drive connected with an SCA adapter. There's an 
issue about the boot slice needing to be in the beginning of the disk, and 
therefore some limit on the size of the boot slice, but other than that, 
so long as you're running NetBSD, there should not be any kind of limit. 
That's one of the nice things about SCSI.
