This is a "physical" solution. In computer world, I think it's not that
quite cool.

But not so much more; NT needs the BIOS to get the size of the
harddisks. If you go beyond aprox. 8.7G (1024 cyls.), then the extra
space wouldn't be useful (or you'd need to partition the disks, and get
some headaches due to the fact that LILO has problems in accessing that
size too).
