Linux will recognize the entire drive either with or without LBA.
However, if you don't use LBA, you will need to put the kernel in a
partition which is in the first 1024 cylinders. If the drive is being
used exclusively for Linux, this is not a big deal, but if you are sharing
it with DOS you will probably want to run LBA in any case.
