2.2.14 MAY be OK - I just read a detailed description of the problem last
night, but I'm buggered if I know where. (Light bulb cartoon !) It was at
http://www.win.tue.nl/math/dw/pp/aeb/linux/Large-Disk-12.html and it appears
that RH6.2 will do you, as the problem was a pre 2.2.14 one.
Hope that makes you happy :-)
