dd and mkfs works with 2.4.3 but not with 2.4.11.x or 2.4.10.x
 
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=1024k   or   mkfs /dev/sdb3 
both fail with "File size limit exceeded"

Booting the same system with 2.4.3 or 2.2.19 anything
works as expected.

So is the problem with the kernel (as I assume) or do I miss something ?

Can anyone else please verify this ? 

(One really needs two disks, dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null does not show
the problem)

Almost a me too:

On a Compaq Armada 1750 with 2.4.3-20mdk (as installed from Mandrake 8.0):

dd if=/boot/grub/stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1
reports back: dd: /dev/fd0: Invalid argument

On the same laptop with 2.4.11-pre5 the same command barfs with:
dd: /dev/fd0: Permission denied

On a P180 w/ 2.4.10-pre13: dd: /dev/fd0: Permission denied

In the first kernel the floppy driver is compiled as a module.
Without the seek=1 (or whatever number there) it works in all cases.

I thought it was something that had to do with my drives but seeing
your report makes me wonder. Perhaps sombody more knowledgeable can
comment...

-K.
