Where does the 2GB restriction come from, and are people working to remove it?

hello: I would like to install the hurd to find out what it is like. I will be putting it on a second drive slaved to my linux drive as a dual boot setup. Its a new 40 Gbyte IDE drive. What sort of partitions would you recommend, with what sizes.

The Hurd only supports ext2 and ufs filesystems of 2GB. because of this you have to create multiple partitions if you want to use more than 2GB.

I have a 2GB root partition and a 2GB /home partition. I also have a partition for a neighbourhurd, this can be usefull if you want to test your Hurd builds or debug some stuff :). Perhaps it is even wise to have a 3th partition to compile stuff on. (I've noticed a lot of building can corrupt your filesystem, you don't want this with your /home).
