Re: Unlucky Installation

Unfortunately, the Hurd filesystems (ffs and ext2fs) currently have an
implementation limitation that makes them unable to handle disk partitions
bigger than about 1GB.  (They map the entire disk partition into their
memory, so it and everything else has to fit in the 2GB address space 
user tasks get in Mach.)
