Ok I'll see if linux likes the disk. before the bios upgrade the machine
wouldn't see it at all when I selected ide hdd autodetection in the bios. I
even calculated the chs values for the disk and tried entering them manually
but the machine wouldn't like that either.
I think the problem may be that the updated bios I have is a hacked version
since J-bond never released a fix for the 32gb bug and they don't even seem
to be in business anymore.
