the cable nor controller should affect "capacity" it sees
root# fdisk -l /dev/hdc
-- should tell you how many cylnder/sector/heads it thinks there is
i suspect your p5 mb is too too old
- check that the bio supports ata-66/ata-100/ata-133
( probably doesnt )
- check that the jumpers on the drive is setup for "big disk"
( jumper setting varies w/ manufacturer (ibm, maxtor, wd, seagate)
- check the kernel supports the ide chipset on the mb
