Restore informix database

I want to make a copy of an existing db on a separate system. The db is backup'd with ontape.

To my opinion the steps you have to take are:
- install informix software
- create db with same devices as on live server
- restore db

Test system contains less disks as production server however totally we have enough space.
The problem is that I have heard that you can't install more than 14 Gb on 1 disk with informix (2 Gb chunks with 7 devices on 1 disk makes 14Gb). Is this correct?

OS: Solaris 7, Informix 7.31.
