  Well, Sourceforge itself makes no assumptions on the size of your
storage.  If you can get Linux (as in "the kernel and the libc") to
understand about your terabytes, SF will happily use them.  If you
install a relatively recent Debian system (I think latest stable
should be enough), then you'll most probably have no problem.  Just
mount the appropriate partitions on appropriate mountpoints, and
you'll be fine.

  By the way, if/when you get your terabyte SF working, be sure to
tell us about it, we'd love to be able to brag about it :-)

  Actually, I'm not sure the chroot is really used.  It's created, but
it's only used for the pserver anonymous CVS access method, which you
hardly use anyway since it's a read-only access method.  And you can
disable it by hand if needed.
