Hang on - I doubt you've got enough disk space to do that. That's
terabytes of space you'd need. If you need the whole world then you
should look into mod_tile which will wait until someone looks at the
area before it renders it. If you need to pre-generate images, you'll
need to pick smaller areas and be especially conservative with zoom
Anyway, scroll to the bottom of generate_tiles.py and change the
bboxes there. You could change 0,5 to 0,16 on line 126
and watch your hard disks die!
