crosspost: to owners of 160 GB disks (and up), here's howto fully use it

I may reach more people here who compile their own and are geek enough to have big disks, so I dare a crosspost from my yesterday's user list posting.

Hello,

thanks to a subsidy by fellow Thomas Kobler I'm now a proud owner of a 160GB disk instead of the originally planned 120GB. (Hey, why the extra expense for only 17GB extra I can use with the existing 137 GB limit...) So I was bribed to support larger disks with Rockbox.

Since yesterday Rockbox can use LBA48 when compiled for it. Together with the multi-partition capability (another compile time option) we can use the >137 GB part of large disks.

Read here for details:

Have fun,
Jrg
