I just purchased a 1.26GB HD, its a maxtor EIDE drive, also in my system is a
Maxtor 250 MB Hard drive.
I have read that the new kernels have no problems with big IDE drives but I
have the 1.3.8 kernel and still have problems.
I would like to have my system configured as follows. First Drive is the
maxtor 250 MB drive, fully devoted to LINUX. Second drive, cyls 0 to 1024 DOS,
cyls 1025 up (504 MB to 1.26GB) for LINUX. Problem is, FDISK even under linux
will not see the >504MB area of the disk.
I saw that there is a command I can give LILO to specify the geometry before
the kernel loads. However, the command didn't seem to specify WHICH drive in my
2 drive system i was giving the geometry of.
I would greatly appreciate anyones comments or pointers.
