Typing "n" to add a new partition gets the reply "No free sectors
available". This message comes whether or not DMA is enabled. I'd be
grateful if someone can say how to get access to the rest of the disk. Must one upgrade to at least RH 7.3 in order to get LBA48 support?

Oops, now that I look again, you are close to the 137GB limit (I see just over 134GB). Do you have a LBA48 controller? If not, you are only going to get 3GB more.
