It's possible to run a 48bit EIDE drive on a board that doesn't support 
them by setting the BIOS to none for that drive and then letting the 
kernel detect it at boot time.  BIOS support is only required if you 
want to boot from it.  I've done this on some older boxes, ran a smaller 
boot drive and then larger root drives.  As long as the boot partition 
is on the smaller driver it'll work.
