Maybe this one task can be automated. When I was working on
RAS for a
NAS, we had to be able to handle different HD configurations and
In the install/recovery image I generated on CD (this was several

"root" partition size, we calculated the rest of the disk as a %
available for each desired partition. Worked great.
