Q: I'm setting up a large server, and I'm not sure how to configure the
disks. The new server replaces several smaller ones so it will do a bit
of everything, NFS, a couple of large databases, home directories,
number crunching, intranet home pages. Can I just make one big
filesystem and throw the lot in, or do I need to setup lots of
different collections of disks?
