Plea for help with Large File Support

The system I'm working on is Debian 2.2 (potato) with a ReiserFS 3.5 partition
on it. I'm assured that on this setup, I should be able to have files of up to
4GB in size, currently I get barfage at exactly 2GB :-(

What do I need to do to get Python 1.5.2 and Python 2.1 compiled in such a way
that I read and write to files bigger than 2GB?
