We have the databases loaded virtually onto a single 2 GB disk, but have
symbolic links for various parts to 2 additional disks (therefore, 3 
disks in all).  This does require manually setting this up the first 
time, but the GCG install program will follow the links automatically
in all subsequent updates.
