2.4.0test7 has all the LFS (large file support) in it. It will work
on ext2 - but e.g. not on NFSv2.

You need a new glibc (no need to recompile your programs). glibc 2.2
will support the kernel LFS interfaces, a beta quality test release is
available as glibc 2.1.93 (search the mailing list archives at
http://sources.redhat.com/glibc for the announcement).

Some distributions, like SuSE 7.0 (RedHat might also, I'm not sure),
come with a glibc 2.1.3 that has LFS support in it that works with
2.4.0testX.
