    my DFI K6BV3+ bios dated 08/05/99 still had the same bug(s)!
    fortuneately I got a newer bios version which now supports my 40GB disk.

    WARNING: this doesn't work for all bios versions !!!

    for my old DFI bios version, it was _not_ possible to start the system
    even if I've specified <32GB disk size as user settings in the bios setup.

    a recent article of german magazine c't tells the same: using bios user setting
    below 32GB as workaround to start/boot with 40GB disks only works for some bios versions,
    not for all main boards (as my DFI board has prooven:(
