        I have a 13.6gig Maxtor IDE hard drive in an H45 (Shuttle EPAT)
parrallel enclosure. Linux can only "see" the first 8gigs of the drive. I
read in the large-disk-HOWTO that this was a problem with the IDE driver but
it has been fixed in THAT driver but there is no mention of the parport
driver. I assume the problem is probobly related but I don't know for sure.
If I remove the drive from its enclosure and put it on my desktop's IDE
controller it works fine. I am using an IBM ThinkPad 380ed p5-166mmx with
a mostly Slackware 3.2 system. I have tried kernel 2.0.36 and 2.2.1 and I
get the same results. Bootup messages:

when using parport driver:
pda: epat 1.01, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x278, mode 3 (EPP-8), delay 1
pda: Maxtor 91360D8, master, 16514064 blocks [8063M], (16383/16/63), fixed media
 pda: pda1

when using IDE controller:
hdc: Maxtor 91360D8, 12970MB w/256kB Cache, CHS=26353/16/63
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 3
 hdc: [PTBL] [1653/255/63] hdc1
ide_cs: hdc: Vcc = 5.0, Vpp = 0.0
