Subject: Large drive support (IDE/SCSI)
I realize similar questions have been asked on the list, but to clarify
(and maybe for the sake of the FAQ):
- What's the largest IDE hard drive capacity OpenBSD can handle?
I understand there is a limit of ~ 33gig or so with most current
BIOSes (I grabbed this info from a URL posted previously to the list:
However, not too long ago someone posted about having trouble with a
20-some-odd gig drive.
- What's the largest SCSI hard drive capacity OpenBSD can handle?
Would I be able to use a 50gig SCSI drive with OpenBSD? Under SPARC
- Finally, are there any special drive parameters that should be used
when setting up a large disk under OpenBSD?
Thanks in advance,
