Ok Bill, thanks for your answer. My SATA is a Seagate 7200.7 with 120
GB. FreeBSD 5.3 doesn't recognize the geometry of my disk. FreeBSD
force me to input another geometry and gives me 114 GB and i think
this cause the problem.

Nope. That is about all you will get. Working with a pair of Western Digital
120 GB PATA the last 2 days, get about 114.4 GB with either FreeBSD
or DFLY. 200 GB Maxtors, PATA or SATA give me about 190 GB or so.

Few HDD can (or should) give you 100% of the theorecticaly
available area.

For marketing purposes 1G == 1000M, so with (120 x 1000)/1024 we're looking at a theoretically available area of 117G. No one really makes 120G (117G) or 200G (195G) hard drives.
