Don't know, but I suspect it's around 32M.  I seem to remember
seeing something mentioned somewhere.  I just divided a 42M
Seagate into 5 partitions to play with.  I may test the limits
eventually but for right now I would just like to get some of
the OSes loaded on the hard disk so I can work with them.
Especially RSX180 as I have some other plans for that one.
