With two HDDs and raidframe setup, number of 16 wedges available on isn't  sufficient. During install attempt I got 19 of them and I still have a plenty of free space available.

TWO disks, each contains four "other partitions" plus three raidframe partitions equals to 14 wedges and then /, /var, /usr, /home and swap on raidframe raises numbers to 19 wedges (dk0 to dk18).

Increase number of wedges (/dev/dk* and /dev/rdk*) on install media (and  in default installation, if necessary) up to 32 (or more, if possible).
