Odd... I don't think I've ever had fsck take longer than 30seconds on boot for my system directories/partitions (except the time I had a 300Gig+ root partition) --Joe 16:41, 13 March 2006 (EST)

200G+ /usr

... is massive amounts of pain if you have a machine with hardware issues that keeps core dumping on you. ESPECIALLY if it's in a business environment where that 200G partition is full of *small* files, not mammoth video clips and the like... trust me, fsck'ing that bad boy will take a loooooooong time if the median file size is in the 1.5mb range. I do a lot of Samba servers for mid-size offices. It got ugly before I learned to separate everything out of /usr but stuff you actually need to *boot* the server with. --Jimbo 02:54, 14 March 2006 (EST)

thank you

Well, I was away from FreeBSD for a wile (since version 3) and because I am still a novice, I was looking for some info about disk partioning with larger drives (all examples I've seen are with old small drives). Then I found this excelent article! Thank you! Just a litlle opinion from a novice: maybe some of us (dummies) may ask ourselves about what to do with the / partition after reading this article... may be the author could include a paragraph about this one too.
