I'm running 272 GB in 7 LV (all with reiserfs(*)) w/o problems. The only
thing I changed lately was the CPU. (I've fried my PIII-1000 and I've
returned to a C433).
The System is: C433, 1024MB PC133, 3Ware 6800, 6x 80GB Maxtor, Intel EEpro100,
 1x 40GB Fujitsu (boot disk at onboard controller), BX chipset (ASUS CUBX).


(*) mkreiserfs doesn't work either (same error), it works ok with 1G

Any pointers appreciated,
    Goetz.
