    That's right for 32-bit systems with 4k pages. For 64 bit systems the
    limit is over 8 Exabytes.

    You should note that software raid has smaller limits, as does the
    LVM. Also the 2.4 patches have seen *much* less testing than the 2.6
    mainline (except possibly on the SGI Altix).

    What exactly are you trying to do?
