I am setting up a new server and have a question. This server has
three 8GB SCSIs, and one 160 GB IDE. I was interested in striping the

There's about 3 Gb on there.
Perhaps I could just mount it as /usr/ports? or should I choose a
Thanks for any input.
OH! BTW. This is going to be a backup server using BackupPC, so I will
be installing an additional IDE later.
