Maybe this one task can be automated. When I was working on RAS for a
NAS, we had to be able to handle different HD configurations and sizes.
In the install/recovery image I generated on CD (this was several years
past), we used sfdisk to automatically partition the HDs. Using a fixed
"root" partition size, we calculated the rest of the disk as a % of
available for each desired partition. Worked great.
