Default NetBSD 5 as a desktop

I want to use netbsd 5 as a desktop os on my laptop. I want gnome as my desktop. So I have some questions:

1) Is there a meta binary package for gnome which will install the complete gnome set.

2) On linux we have hal and fam which handles auto mount and other stuff in gnome, what all packages do I need to install to get similar functionality on netbsd.

3) I read in netbsd 5 release note that their is now a journalized filesystem, how do i enable that, what all options do i have to select during installation.

4) I have a 160 gd hdd so what should be the ideal partitioning for a desktop setup, I want to dedicate whole disk to NetBSD.

5) I searched on pkgsrc.se and the complete list on pkgsrc.org but i couldn't find gnome full text search app called tracker, doesn't NetBSD support it. I use tracker and 'gnome-do' a lot.
