It will not be able to access any storage beyond 128 Gigs...

I got a bunch of 120 Gig Segate IDE drive on sale a while ago at pretty decent prices for my Ultras, been very happy with the performance (considering...) If you're concerned about the lost storage space, 120 Gig IDE drives get down to $30-40 pretty often these days, even at places like Best Buy/CompUSA...

No problem...
