Does FreeBSD support multiple-drive volumes??  I was under the (perhaps 
incorrect) assumption that this 'striping' support still did not exist in 
FreeBSD.  AIX has a nice implementation of this exact feature.  I've 
glued together two 4.5 Gig drives into one "logical volume" upon which I 
can create several partitions, etc..
