MAX_ROWS on Partitions

On a site I'm creating, there will be multiple Forums for different things (on an NDBCLUSTER).
I'm deciding whether to create a table for each Forum, or to create one big table (holding all Forums) and partition it horizontally(based on which forum a row belongs to). I know that the maximum MAX_ROWS on a table is around 4.3billion(4294967295), and that "one big table" may eventually exceed 4.3b rows. So, my question is:

is the 4.3billion-rows the total maximum for a table (partitioned or not), or can you set MAX_ROWS separately on each partition to MAX_ROWS=4294967295 (there by making the table go beyond 4.3b rows)?
