Hard Drive Memory Limit

I have a G5 Power Mac, 1.6GHz. I am trying to squeeze some more life out of it before I replace it. In the spec on the Apple Support site it says: Support for up to two internal Serial ATA drives; 500GB maximum system capacity

Is this limitation a hardware or a software limitation?
Does it have something to do with the file system?
Is there any way around this limit? (without going to external drives)
The computer shipped with OSX 10.2. Would updated to 10.4.7 get rid this limit?

I want to know if I can add larger internal hard drives.
