tlug: Re: "boot partition too big" while installing RH6.1j - part 2

Sorry, it's me again : )

I don't know if it can help to help me, but when I run DOS's fdisk, I am
asked if I want
to use support for large drives,  I think the default is yes, but it says
that if I create a new drive there can be problems for other OSes to access
this drive. Should I disable the support for large drives? (I don't know
very much, but I think if I do that, maybe I can't use partitions larger
than 2GB)
