I was installing Solaris 2.6 x86 onto a 20gb disk and found that it won't
install into more than 1024c ( = 8gb ). Apparently the fdisk program is
broken. The bios ( on the dell xps ) can see the full 20gb of the disk etc.
it can be allocated in Dos etc. I've had a suggestion to use the Linux boot
disks and make the other partitions with this fdisk ( or disk druid etc. ),
create the partition as a Linux swap as these have the same id as a solaris
fs, reboot to Solaris and allocate + newfs them.
Has anyone seen this before?
