Well, I was pointed to bootdisk.com where the Dr Dos boot floppy was
exactly what I needed.

So now my BIOS is all updated, but it didn't give me the result I was
expecting.  I'm still only getting 32Gb reported for the capacity of
this drive -- even in the new BIOS.  And accordingly, linux's only
showing the same:

hdb: IC35L080AVVA07-0, ATA DISK drive
hdb: 66055248 sectors (33820 MB) w/1863KiB Cache, CHS=4111/255/63, UDMA(33)

Anyone have any ideas?
