1. don't most PCs show this at 'set CMOS' via <delete> at boot.
   re. IDE autodetect ?

2. Using the utility which John Drake sent me for testing:-

RXEnhanced.GrepAll "SYS:*.Mod"  "LBA"

yields :-
		|00CH: s := "Win 95/98, FAT32 LBA"
		|00EH: s := "DOS FAT16 LBA"
		|00FH: s := "Extended LBA"

IMO Partitions.Mod is very 'powerfull' and well documented.

3. Perhaps linux checks and traces LBA at boot-time. Try:
dmesg >  LookAtdmesg
  and then examine file:LookAtdmesg

Or some people like: dmesg | fgrep LBA
