The last limit was 33.8 Gb, but after 2.2.14 that should be OK. Beware of your
BIOS, too. Try Large-Disk-HOWTO also.
I hope this helps.

Nope.  2T is the theoretical limit for a partition as of now, and the
largest IDE drive you can buy in the store is ~ 90G.  An 80G IDE drive
with only one partition covering the whole disk worked just fine under
kernel 2.2.17, so you should have no problem.
