Whats wrong with having a single 27 gig volume???? Try rebooting it when
the machine crashes because of cosmic rays.. Or just fscking it when you
feel like it..
Or if you dont have lots of ram try formating it.. I was unable to format
a 36gig volume with 2.1.40 and 64megs of ram.. After putting mem=256M on
the commandline I could format it..

Or what if you want to use software raid??

Saying things like that sounds bad for linux...
It's what apple did with macs, 'What's wrong with a GUI? Why would anyone
want a commandline??'
