>> By the way, I take back the above statement. It not any where near what
was in discussion here. I misread the thread. The 4GB limit on the file size
is a hard limit can not be avoided on any platform. Its actually driven by
the hardware I believe. I think most file system had this limit when running
on 32 bit hardware, at least I do remember oracle have it.  Something to do
with the 2 power 32 address limit.
