HD formatting utils for DOS

I was wondering if there were any drivers or utils available that would allow a DOS or Win3.1 machine to have drive partitions over 2GB? I know old IDE controller had hardware limitations to the drive size they can read (BIOS issues also) but would there be a problem with raiding SCSI drives on say an old Adaptec card to give you 20GB of space that DOS could read and write to (non booting)? I am not worried about DOS being modified so that the individual file size can be extended, just the available partition size so I don't have a dozen 2GB partitions.
There are drivers made for Mac systems that would allow system 7.x to use volumes up to a couple TB when Mac OS 7.x could not have greater then 2GB partitions so I figured there might be something like that for the DOS machines.
