full text index

First of all I would like to beg your perdon for my english.

My question is about full text index.

from the performance point of view, is it better one catalog per table or one catalog for all the tables?
what in your opinion should be the limits in terms of the number of fields per table than must be include in then index in order to keep the date base performance? (I have a table with 232 fields and around 72 varchar and text fields that can be included and I dont know if is a good idea to include all of them)

..it depends on your environment:
The sql server 2008 will store FTS catalogs in DB ndf files: so probably to keep  each FTS index in it's own ndf - is not so bad idea

It based on your field access. The files which you use more ti get filter out data create index on that field.
