Your hard drive has likely been partitioned as if it were 137 GB. 
Installing a new kernel won't fix that - you'll have to repartition your 
drive, which means a complete reinstall.

I think you need to reinstall Woody and select the bf24 kernel at 
installation time. This will detect your large hard drive correctly, 
allowing you to partition it correctly.
