Oh please. Multiple CDs suck. The only people willing to bother
are the ones who can't afford the dosh, i.e. warez kids. There's
nothing better than a 75G disk with NFS, tar, and gzip -10, and dd for those
beloved 640Meg chunkolas.

Speaking of which, I've been trying to figure out if Sun
can turn JXTA into something interesting. Every "protocol"
needs a killer app. I wonder if some command line rsync to
a parallel virtual file system might do the trick. Right
now with a RAID box, you need all the disks in the same box
or else fdisk won't recognize them. I wonder if one of the
JXTA command would be like an rfdisk so you could mess with
other people's low level file systems to store all your encrypted
