    But which IDE controllers support 48-bit addressing? Not all of them? Does
    linux IDE driver support 48-bit for all of them? Do they require BIOS
    upgrade in order to operate 48-bit?

    Or can I just grab a 160GB Maxtor and 2.4.19-preX, stick them into whatever
    box I have and be done with it?
