I have a IDE HDD of 12Gb, but Linux only seems to detect 8G, even if I
give it hd=23361,16,63 as parameters.
I have 1 primary dos partition (3Gb) (fat32) and one extended (2*3Gb) (fat32)
and my ext2 linux partition consists of the last 3 Gb of my disk. Everything
works, but when I try to mount my /dev/hda5 or /dev/hda6 as vfat or
anything else, it says "FAT bread failed". I suspect this has something
to do with the 8 Gb buisines.

Which kernel version are you running?
using more than 8gb shouldn't be a problem under one of the development kernels (2.1.60+)..
if you are running 2.0.33, then it is a known problem.
2.0.33 lacks UDMA support, and therefor will never go higher than 8gb. Try one of alan cox's 2.0.34pre patches (pre7 or higher)

no, 2.0.32 doesn't support FAT 32 yet
get the development kernel and try to compile it
2.1.103 at sunsite.unc.edu or linux.kernel.org
