BIOS limitation: 40G hard disk?


I just bought a 40G hard-disk but my BIOS does not detect it. I think that
QNX does not use the built-in PC BIOS. I also think that if I want to boot
from the 40G, then the BIOS must detect it.

However, if I boot from another hard-disk, can devb-eide access the 40G as a
second hard-disk?

(Note: I don’t want to use the cylinder limitation jumper which makes my
BIOS recognize it as a 32G hard disk.)
