   Linux FAQ > 5. File Systems, Disks, and Drives
Question:  5.17. The AHA1542C Doesn't Work with Linux.
Answer:

The option to allow disks with more than 1024 cylinders, which the AHA1542C card can recognize, is only required as a workaround for a PC-compatible BIOS misfeature and should be turned `off' under Linux. For older Linux kernels you need to turn off most of the `advanced BIOS' options—all but the one about scanning the bus for bootable devices.
