Subject: [gentoo-alpha] Largest IDE hard drive supported by internal connector

Please CC me directly as I am offlist...

	I have been tempted to put a laptop IDE hard drive in my multia...but I  
was concerned about 2 issues:

	1) I remember a while back when there was a limit to the size of a drive  
a bios could see, and effectively use. Does such a limit exist on the  
onboard controller, and if so, what is it?

	2) What cable/connector would be required to make this work?

Thanks in advance,
