For this project i think i will use Redhat AS 3. I see this version
backport some feature of the 2.6 kernel. Do you know is this include the
large block devices support ?

In fact, the main question is : Is RHEL3 + LVM + GFS + Oracle is usable
in production with a database which could grow up to more than 100 Tb of
data ?
