ide drive limit

 does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of ide drives you can 
have in one system?  i'm not concerned with performance, the server is being 
used for backup.  standard pc hardware, amd athlon 4200+, multiple ide 
controllers.  the ide controllers have been working for quite a while, until 
the drive count went over 8. 

i'm running fedora 8.  when there are 8 drives it runs fine.  any more than 
that and lvm starts failing.  fdisk also fails  with  9 drives. 
i saw this behavior  with fedora  6, which prompted a rebuild with f8. 


If it ain't broke, you're not trying hard enough!
