Subject: Bigggg Maxtor drives

Hi there. As I understand it you're the linux IDE guy,
so if you don't mind answering a question for me, I'd
appriciate it.

I recently bought a Maxtor 4G160J8. This hard drive is
Maxtor's biggest harddrive as of yet, coming in at
160GB. Linux sees this drive as a mere 134 or so gigs
as shown by the below:

hde: Maxtor 4G160J8, ATA DISK drive
hde: 268435455 sectors (137439 MB) w/2048KiB Cache,
CHS=266305/16/63, UDMA(33) hde: hde1

Do I need to pass the kernel any arguments though grub
to see the full size, or is this just a kernel level
limitation?

Any help is appriciated.

Thanks,
-Aaron
