I'm wanting to get a large IDE hard drive for an old Pentium 120 I have
here, I'm wondering if there's a limit to the size I can use - I have a
feeling the BIOS is limited to 8Gb or something in the older machines.
The question is, am I able to fully use a large IDE drive in linux even
though the BIOS doesn't support it?
