I had a funny problem with my USB HD when I tried to copy Ubuntu 6.1
repository DVD images into it, two of them more than 4G. And the copy
was getting truncated, because on the VFAT partition files more than 4G
is impossible. So what I did was unmounting the thing with 'umount', and
then running 'fdisk' on it, deleting the partitions and create a new
one, the whole 80G. And then running mkfs.reiserfs on it. Works fine.
