There is a patch for kernels 2.0.30 and 2.0.31pre9 (which also works with
pre10) on http://www.uni-ulm.de/~s_mbuck1/linux/patches.html
Alternatively, you can use 2.1.57 which supports 2048 byte sectors out of
the box.

By the way, what's the point in including the same mail twice, once as
plain text (which is okay) and once as html (which seems rather useless to
me)?
