Umm, not to harsh your experience or anything, but a single partition
can have multiple copies of the metadb...it just has to be big enough.

If you have any disks that are separate from those being used by SVM,
I generally put a few copies of the metadb on there as well, depending
on just how much SVM is in use (e.g. how important being able to
easily recover is).
