Default Presario 5005CL: How To Find Out How Big A Hard Drive Bios Supports?

Got an 80-gigger in there.

Would like to put in a 120, 200, 250, or 300 - depending on what's on sale.

Anybody know how to tell if the BIOS will support the larger sizes?

I doubt that model supports 48-bit LBA, which is required for drives over
127MB. A 120 MB drive almost certainly will work.
