Large Hard Drives in RH 5.x K2.0.36
Have a RH5.2 (k 2.0.36) system that has an 8GB secondary IDE drive. It consistently has FSCK problems when booting. Forces a drop to single user and a manual FSCK of "hdb1". Thought we would fix this by setting up another IDE drive on a non-production system and then moving it to the one with the 8GB problem drive. So we picked a WD400 40GB drive. Unfortunately, we have exactly the same problem with the other system. I recall the former administrator had problems when moving from a 4GB secondary to the existing 8GB drive.
Does RedHat 5.2 with Kernel 2.0.36 have a problem with IDE drives larger than 4GB? If so, is there a way around it other than upgrading to a newer version? We have OS restrictions that will not permit this.
