Are there Issue on LVM and very large drives?

Im trying to play with it on a Maxtor 160G IDE and cant hardly get
started..


[root habenero /root]# pvcreate /dev/hdc1
pvcreate -- physical volume "/dev/hdc1" successfully created
[root habenero /root]# vgcreate test /dev/hdc1
vgcreate -- ERROR "pv_read(): PV identifier invalid" reading physical
volumes


A little drive info if that helps:

[root habenero /root]# cat /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/geometry 
physical     266305/16/63
logical      266305/16/63
[root habenero /root]# cat /proc/ide/ide1/hdc/model    
Maxtor 4G160J8

Disk /dev/hdc: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 266305 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes
   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hdc1             1    133000  67031968+  83  Linux
/dev/hdc2        133001    266305  67185720   83  Linux
