- External USB Hard Drive - Addressing limit?

care of addressing so that partition size limit imposed by the BIOS
(e.g., "137gB") doesn't matter?
I bought an enclosure, am shopping for a drive to build an external
HDD to use for backup of several machines ... including two born
ten years ago. I tried my other USB drive (80gB, one partition)
on one old-timer (AOpen P200 vintage 1996). It saw the whole drive
with no problem. Is that typical or should I plan on partitioning
to suit the machine with the lowest BIOS limit?
