Several questions come to mind:

1. Why should Fedora Core restrict all users to the 32 GB limit of an old BIOS?

2. All Linux distros provide the kernel source. Why can't you compile
your own kernel with this parameter set to whatever value you desire?

3. Have you searched for an updated or patched BIOS for your system
that does not have the 32 GB limit?

4. If your BIOS has a 32 GB limit how did data get onto the second
hard drive which I assume has a capacity in excess of 32 GB?
