120 GB larger hard disk



Dear All,

I have recently bought a PC with 120 GB had drive. 
Windows XP was the operation system.   I did see all
the space - 120 GB and it worked fine.

I deleted all the paritions already on the hard drive 
and tried to install RedHat 6.2 on it.  No matter what
I tried, I could just use 1/4 of the hard drive (about
 30 GB).  If trying to create a partition with larger
size, it always ended up with - "inode out of bounds"
and thus failure in installing the operating system.

I had also tried to create 4 primary partitions, each
with 30 GB.  I did manage to install the system. 
However, the happiness only lasted a short while -
once rebooted, the file system seamt corrupted (need
fsck).

Reading through Google news groups, I learnt that
RedHat 6.2 with kernel versison 2.2.14 can handle
large disk size (> 34 GB).  However, I own experience
told another story - it seams that RedHat 6.2 could
NOT handle hard drive size above 34 GB!

Would you gurus shed a light on this?

Thank you very much in advance.

James Wang
