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.
