What is the rest of your hardware info? I'm searching for a reason why you're
not able to use LBA-- what distribution are you using, what motherboard and/or
ide controller? I've never had anything but problems with those large disk
"kludges", and in the long run, I've always had to reformat to remove them. I'd
recommend not to do it? What OS's are you trying to get to co-exist?? How are
you trying to arrange them, partition size-wise? Your bios date could be a
factor too, but your motherboard manufacturer may be the only one who could tell
if that particular version is so limited???
I'm not sure that it is possible, but I'm REAL sure that it's not safe!
