Please don't talk vague useless garbage.
There is no entity called "Linux". If you mean "the 2.4.0 kernel
boot messages report 61 GB, fdisk 2.9s sees 32 GB, fdisk 2.10r sees 61 GB"
then say so. If you mean something else, say what you mean.
Precisely, with versions and everything.

Since you have a Maxtor, my old setmax should suffice for you, it can kill
the clip, and there is no reason to use ibmsetmax.c, that is a version for
IBM disks. There should not be any need to use other machines.

If something changed for recent Maxtor disks, we would like to know,
but only reliable, detailed reports are of any use.
