If you select nspin=2 along with some starting magnetization, it means that
you are doing LSDA calculations. Usually the final spin polarized results
in ferromagnetic systems are not sensitive to the initial magnetization.
Hence I would say set your starting magnetization to numbers between 0.5
and 0.8.
