Try allocating all of the disk space to a single root partition. This will make backups a little more difficult, but not much. Alternatively, try a more minimal installation at first, and then add things later, when you can follow the inode usage more closely. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
