sysinstall can't create MBR partitions larger then around 1TB, but you
can install the OS on a small partition leaving the reset unallocated
and then use the fdisk utility to create a large partition.
In practice, you need 5.x to make this work.
Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
