Since FB 1.5 uses 64bit I/O you should not care about FB in the
comparasion matrix. It will handle LARGE files.

I have looked sometimes when this question arises, the point to care is
your file system, search the dcos of ReiserFS to see the maximum file
size it supports, that's the answer for your question.

see you !
