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?
