48 bit LBA
I originally posted a request for assistance on this on 5/10, with no
response. I am a new to Linux and debian. Am I doing something wrong or is
this something that is not covered on this list?
I am tiring to install debian on a newly built system. Gigabyte main-board
GA-7VKMLS, AMD Athlon 1700 processor, 1GB memory, VIA KM266/VT8233A chipset
and a Maxtor 160GB hard-disk. I have confirmed that the chipset and system
BIOS support the 48 bit LBA necessary to address drives past 137GB. I have
booted Redhat 8.0 to see if it would properly read the drive. RH will format
15637MB-ex3. Both RH and the disk 5 of the debian "woody" collection boot
with a kernel version 2.4.18. I read everything that I can find to no avail.
Does anyone have any idea how to over come this issue?
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
