Well, ext2 has a FILE size limit of 2-gigs on 32-bit platforms.  I think
that it should be able to handle very large chunks of SCSI disks, as well as
huge IDE ones, but there have been some problems with 36GB-IDE drives on
linux.  I suspect that any drive that you throw at linux, it can probably
format, and put an ext2 filesystem on it.  Too bad linux doesn't run on the
plain old Sun4...
