Subject: big IDE disks

Is it possible to use an IDE disk of 1G with NetBSD? I have tried to
partition my disk to be shared between NetBSD and DOS, but I am having no
luck at all. Pfdisk.exe will write out a partition table with a
geometry of 524 c, 64 h and 63 s, but not with 2100 c, 16 h and
63s. However, when the install for netbsd 1.0 tries to write the
partition, it gets geometry failures from wd0. Needless to say things
do not work out well from that point.
So am I failing to set things up correctly? Or am I wasting my time?
Any help will be much appreciated.
