Like every kid cuts his own hair once with disastrous results, you're allowed 
one of those in your life. You've used that up now ;-). Next time we slag you

Not that I know of. You still have hex editors.

No. I have 3 gig partitions. It all depends on the lies you tell to the ide 
interface. The only existing 2 gig limit afaik was with the 'large' disk 
access mode. Since linux doesn't use the bios anyhow, this is acedemic. I 
presume you're on chs or the older lba. It does cause me to wonder how big 
does fdisk think the partition is. It was screwed up, remember.
