Or alternatively you may be thinking about the 32Gb cap limit which means that your board doesn't understand drives bigger than 32Gb. Most Pentium 3 boards don't have this limit (there are exceptions) so if the board knows that it's looking at a 60Gb drive (for example), Windows will see a 60Gb drive.

"it'll look as if it can't cope with huge drives but the reality is it can" ... do you mean it might show that a hdd is let s say 80gb, but it will be able to store 200 in it or something?

In reality, having just had a quick Google, it appears that you're only going to be able to push it up to 137Gb maximum, because after that it needs support that you'll only find in the fifth generation of Windows - ie Windows 2000, XP and Vista, and in any case your motherboard won't understand the drive bigger than 137Gb anyway.
