Continuing to get XFS to work


# yum instal kmod-xfs.x86_64
# yum install xfsprogs.x86_64
# yum install xfsdump.x86_64
# yum install xfsprogs.x86_64

# fdisk /dev/sdb
Created the partition.

fdisk reported

Disk /dev/sdb: 7731.4 GB, 7731478004224 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 939965 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Fdisk will only allowed 267349 (2TB) for the partition.

# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1             223G  5.9G  206G   3% /
tmpfs                 2.0G     0  2.0G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/sdb1             2.0T  1.1M  2.0T   1% /home

How can I create a partition grater then 2TB.

Also I have noticed that the GUI utilities do not recanisr 
the partition at all. Is there anything else that I need 
to install?
