    which is why I don't think I'd be able to do the job :) Seriously, though,
    Digital's approach seems to be to create a directory, /etc/fdmns/, which
    in turn has subdirectories - eg, home_domain, root_domain, etc. - holding
    symlinks to the partitions (/dev/rz0f, /dev/rz1f, etc.) contained within
    the domain. 'Twould be interesting, but yes, the time would probably be
    better spent (for the moment) on ext2.
