SubjectRe: Storage Limitations
I have 2 * 92GB and one * 68GB (all on DPT PM 3334) and I'm building one
68GB on ICP-Vortex (GDT6538RD).

The only thing I had to do so far, was:

--- linux/drivers/scsi/scsicam.c.orig Mon Jun 29 15:33:48 1998
+++ linux/drivers/scsi/scsicam.c Mon Jun 29 15:32:58 1998

}

as the number of cylinders is only unsigned int not unsigned long :(
