By default, no.

/dev/ra00       4606    3080    1526    67%    /
/dev/ra01       9598    2849    6749    30%    /usr
/dev/ra03     423041    8773  414268     2%    /user1

I used partition 3 which is the rest of the disk not used by Ultrix-11
and then did the symbolic link thing in the installs.

That is true, but I seem to remember that even then it is not enough
space for a full install.  And I plan to put the sources on as well.

It's all good fun.  But, as I said, the real fun doesn't begin until
you go to build a new kernel with more features in it.
