Re: Does potato's dbootstrap have a 2GB disk limit?

Yes, it's hard to understand what Charles thinks it is that the Potato
installation system (aka boot-floppies) is doing to limit disks to
2GB.  There is nothing in the install program, dbootstrap, to make
such a limitation.  As for partitioning, we use cfdisk and/or fdisk
(or other programs, depending on the architecture).  As for partition
size support, this is purely an issue of kernel support; Linux 2.2.x
doesn't have the 2GB limit anymore, and we use 2.2.15 pretty much
straight from the kernel maintainers, there is no problem.
