I've just today received a couple of Western Digital 3Tb drives, so I
thought it would be worth a status report - initially on 11.3, but I'll
be trying out 11.4M5 very shortly:

Platform - very plain, second-hand office desktop IBM M52 with a 2.8GHz
Celeron and 2Gb memory.
Drive - Western Digital WD30EZRSDTL, 5400rpm, 64Mb cache, 4096 physical
sector size. SATA II.

Installation of minimal server went just fine, no problems whatsoever.
Note - boot manager lilo, NOT grub.

The partitioning seems a little odd - the first partition starts at
2048s, which is 2048 512-byte sectors, so at 1048576bytes.
