Using over 4GB Hard drive gvp-Combo 030

Hi guys, need some help here. I have a nice GVP-Combo 030 with rom 4.15 and a 18GB HD. I have installed OS3.9 BB1+BB2. The problem is I cant access mre than 4GB of HD. What I have doine so far:
1) Added a 1,5 partition (over 4gb limit) with HDToolBox, disabled Auto-mount feature.
2) In DEVS, edited NSDPatch.cfg, changed the tekmagic command to gvpscsi.device
3) in NSDPatch also made the mount instruction like this:
DEVICE gvpscsi.device RDBUNIT 0 ACTIVATE #?
4) In Startup-Sequence, I added NDSPatch to the line SetPatch SKIPROMUPDATE xxxx,xxx,xxxx

Now when rebooting, I can see the partition marked as unreadable and when I try to format it I got a seek failure error.
Please Please, can anyone point me what I am doing wrong???
Many thanks!

Instead of NSDPatch, try using a directscsi filesystem (for example pfs3aio).
