I have a dual 500 Sawtooth/AGP Graphics. 2 GB ram, Internal DVD/CD burner, USB 2.0 card, 2 internal hard discs. Anyone got any ideas on how to address more than 128 GB per volume?

You need an ide controller card, ata 133. I have one, got it with my dual core 500, is in my quicksilver 800 server now. Works great.

In answer to Dana_W :

My Cube PowerMac is running with a single volume of 160 GB disk (yes, bigger than 128 GB), thanks to a script that I found at The Mac Elite forum (which is sadly down). There is a similar information here and here.

It works fine except:
* Only works with OS X (no System 9)
* the big disk needs to be blank before the trick (or it will be erased)
* If you zap the PRAM, you will not be able to access the information on your disk... until you run the magic trick again.

My Quicksilver's logic board died, I now have a Mirror G4 and very happy with how quietly it runs.
