    Seagate ST3200822A Hard Drive


    I just purchased a ST3200822A Seagate 200GB hard drive and my motherboard only recognizes HD's up to 136 GB. Seagate's website says that "To support drives over 137 GBytes, your computer and operating system must support 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA)." Does anyone know if Fedora Core 2 can support 48-bit LBA?

    Well...I googled and couldn't find any specifics, but the 2.6.* kernel tree has support for 48-bit LBA, so as long as FC2 runs a 2.6 kernel, then you're OK.

    Fedora Core 2 is on kernel 2.6.5 (I think it's .5, but it certainly is 2.6), but does the BIOS on your PC support 48-bit logical block addressing (LBA)?


    have fun
