Who boots off of (or puts / on) a 2TB partition?
Someone with a 4 drive raid5 on a hardware controller with 750GB SATA

partitions and everything on it.  The root partition isn't very big,
but it's on a drive that is bigger than 2TB and hence needs something
other than a DOS partition table.

Why wouldn't you configure the raid controller to give you a small
logical drive (with whatever raid config you want) for the OS, and the
larger logical drive for your data (or for LVM for everything except /)?

I think it's because "disk" itself (which is what the boot loader sees) is .gt. 2TB.
