    SubjectRe: Cylinder limits jumper for drives over 32GB


    I just one of these Draco Drives from Maxtor for evaluation.
    After working the kernel, hdparm, fdisk......I get........

    root@p6dnf% hdparm.big -i /dev/hdg


    Model=Maxtor 54098U8, FwRev=DA620CQ0, SerialNo=K802S4EC
    Config={ Fixed }

    CurCHS=16383/16/63, CurSects=16514064, LBA=yes, LBAsects=80041248

    Drive Supports : ATA/ATAPI-4 T13 1153D revision 17 : ATA-1 ATA-2 ATA-3 ATA-4 ATA-5
    Kernel Drive Geometry LogicalCHS=79406/16/63 PhysicalCHS=79406/16/63

    root@p6dnf% fdisk /dev/hdg

    The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 79406.
    There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
    and could in certain setups cause problems with:
    1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., LILO)
    2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
    (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

    Command (m for help): p

    Disk /dev/hdg: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 79406 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hdg1 1 79406 40020592+ 83 Linux

    Command (m for help):
