oops, that's supposed to be "250GB drives", sorry about that.

(total storage = 2.75TB). To my 64bit FC3 box, this looks like a single huge SCSI disk (/dev/sda). At first there was no way to partition this huge beast, but then [cue fanfare] I found parted!! needless to say, this worked well by using GPT labels (good job parted-guys!). However, grub doesn't recognize GPT. So here's my question: Does anyone know a way to boot from huge volumes (where "huge" = >2TB)? even if it doesn't involve grub, or GPT, I'm open to suggestions. Anybody?
