[buug] mounting big ide fat32 partitions

Hey thanks and sorry for the noise. I figured I'd ask the
locals. All the options from the handbook seemed exhausted and
I couldn't find anything in other list archives or newsgroups.
The funny thing is, the last time I rebooted, the msdos C drive
mounted fine through /etc/fstab and I could see every single file.
There isn't much of a user group in Santa Cruz from a preliminary
search. Maybe I'll pop in at one of your cafe meetings someday.
