Toshiba Laptops and 12GB Drive

I've a Toshiba 470.  This is close enough to the 490 so what I did may be applicable to your machine too.
I've upgraded my harddrive to a 12GB (according to the box 13GB) drive.  The drive came with EZ-BIOS.  The 8GB boundary is a Toshiba BIOS limitation and is not a hardware limitation.  I installed EZ-BIOS and then installed SuSE Linux on top of this.  Without EZ-BIOS, I had only *GB, but with EZ-BIOS I now have 12GB.  This works.  Note:  All distributions do not recognize the EZ-BIOS software.
Thanks & Regards
