This is true for versions 2.x of the firmware.  Major version 3 does away
at least with the 32G limit.
If you have a unit with two flash chip sockets you can upgrade to v3, with
some effort.  You'll have to obtain a second flash chip (they're Intel
N28F001BX 128k units in PLCC44 packages, about US$10) and bring the
firmware image from Mylex' .zip file onto them using an eprom burner.
