We currently keep local databases and plan to continue to do so.  Howver, 
at this point we are about to run out of disk space for GenBank (maybe 
sometime in the next 1-2 releases).  What we will need to do is to split GB
over several disks.  Is there a way to do this? 

We currently store several databases and they are on different disks with the
appropriate logicals pointing to them.  At first glance, however, there is
only a single logical to point to the GenBank disk.
