I see, thanks.
So, the current status is that though it may be possible to create a
partition > 2 TB, several utilities may show "odd" behaviour (according
to that page) ?
Well, as I said, it's not currently a problem for me (yet).
But what is one supposed to do ? Use Linux with 2.6-kernel as
NFS-server, partition the disk into 2 TB- (or 1 TB) chunks and mount
those indivually ?
This should in no way be understood as a criticism, it's merely a question.
