squeeze on 2TB drive


I am trying to setup squeeze on a machine with a WD2001FAS (2TB). The
first problem I am having is that when I initialize the drive it
doesn't prompt me for MBR/GPT so I assume its doing GPT? Secondly,
when I create my first partition it is 8GB, ext4, I cannot make it
bootable. I continue the install and grub fails to install on sda. I
tried playing with the SATA mode in the bios ide/sata/ahci, no luck.

Is this something thats happening due the size? Is this one of those
drives with a weird sector size and maybe thats doing it? Why does
grub fail? Can I somehow get the installer do install grub1 instead?

Any insight would be greatly appreaciated
