I'll have a full Development environment there, of course. cron, sshd, snmpd (haven't figured out yet if I need that in EACH jail yet), etc -- "small stuff" mainly. Eventually some VPN service via an an encryption card, but that's later. If I'm forced to do so, maybe KDE4 for rare/occassional use.

My guess @ /var sizing came as a result of, http://barryp.org/blog/entries/ezjail_ports/ "To keep both jailed and non-jailed systems from trying to put any port-building working-directories or downloaded distribution files in /usr/ports, the /etc/make.conf files (both the "real" one and the ones inside jails) should contain something like: WRKDIRPREFIX= /var/ports DISTDIR= /var/ports/distfiles PACKAGES= /var/ports/packages" And having multiple ports copies ... But, now, as I'm re-reading that, I think I got it backwards. This'll PREVENT having multiple, wasteful copies.

I must've missed the really-easy-and-clear documentation on the whole thing! At least I asked first ;-p > I'm sure you could fit everything on one disk...

If you could get everything in 250GB > (which i think you could easily) RAID 1 might be a nice thing to have Now that's an interesting thought. My Mobo has 1 SATA-2 port (3 devices), and 2 SATA-1 ports (1 device each). And it does support SATA RAID 0/1. I'm NOT AT ALL sure what running RAID on 2 drives on a single SATA-2 port does for performance, but it IS an interesting option. Tanks! > HTH It does :-) Thanks a lot!
