If you install a 'supported by Bios' format drive as boot/root combo you
can disable the larger drives in the Bios and let Linux handle those.
On an old Asus TX97 board I run a 40/60/80/160 Gb driveset (all disabled
in Bios, using a 2 Gb SCSI drive as boot/root) without problems and all
in DMA mode getting about 20 Mbyte/sec max out of each of the IDE drives.
