<h3>What if I need more disk space on my nodes?</h3>
Each node has a partition at the end of the disk that you can use if
you wish. In Linux, the partition is <code>/dev/hda4</code> ; in FreeBSD,
it's </code>/dev/ad0s4</code> . There is no filesystem on this partition,
so you'll need to create it yourself. For example, in Linux:
mkfs /dev/hda4;<br>
mount /dev/hda4 /mnt;
This partition is only 6 Gigs, the size of the leftover space on our
smallest drives. If you need more space than this, it would be possible
to enlarge this partition on some machines (for example, our pc850s
have 40 GB disks,) but that is outside the scope of this FAQ.
