Re: [nslu2-linux] Re: Maximum FAT32 partition?
- Understood, and I have successfully formatted a FAT32 1Tb drive, so I know it is supported on some systems. The question is, does the Slug care about the partition size?
Another possibility: does unslung 6.10 care about the sector size with which I formatted the FAT32 1Tb drive?
