SubjectLargefile support in 2.4
How do normal users get to create/maintain large files (i.e. >2G) in Linux
2.4 on i386?

The root user can make filesize unlimited but a non-root user cannot. They
come up with the same limits in both tcsh and bash (i.e. filesize
1048576 kbytes or 0x40000000)

I can't seem to find where this number comes from anywhere -- either in
glibc-2.2.1 or the kernel. getrlimit64 returns it.

I can't make all my users root users!!! Can anybody help?
