: I have a gateway 2000 166Mhz that has bios version 1.00.01.CN0T and I would very much like to upgrade the 2.6 GB disk to a quantum fireball CX20.4a 20GB that I have lying around. I want to install Mandrake Linux 7.2 in all its glory, but the BIOS upgrades from gateway (1.00.03.CN0T)does not allow me to see more that 8 and a bit GB. Anybody have any suggestions?

Suggest that you get an ATA/66 or ATA/100 expansion card - they support HDDs up to about 128GB.
