At the moment, I've got an old computer with Windows 98 SE installed. Because I upgraded my hard disk, I needed to install a dynamic drive overlay. But now I want to install Linux (I don't know yet if I'll install Mandriva One, Ubuntu or Kubuntu). I've got a Maxtor hd (40 GB). And all the partition tools in Linux recognize my hard drive with the following partitions:
1. EZ-Drive or Unknown (8 GB or something like that)
2. Free (30 GB)
I think this is because the dynamic drive overlay. But if I don't install a ddo, my computer hangs while booting because the BIOS doesn't support hard drives larger than 8 GB.
