I experienced this problem installing Linux on a old 486dx2 50 system with
no BIOS support for big HD.
I heard Linux have no problem with big disks but it isn't for DOS, so I
split the disk into 2 partitions, the 1st for DOS, the 2nd for Linux.
Linux's fdisk seem to see the disk correctly, showing me the right sizes for
both partitions about 425MB for each, but when I try to make an ext2 file
system on the second partition its size is about 200MB, the half of how much
Is there somebody can give me any suggestion about this problem?
