    Subjectpartition table: chs question
    From
    hi.

    for partitions not in the first 8gb of a harddisk, what
    should the c/h/s start and end value be ?

    most fdisks seem to set start and end to 255/63/1023.
    but partition magic creates partitions with start set to
    0/1/1023 and end set to 255/63/1023, and detects a problem
    if start is set to 255/63/1023.

    so, how should a partition table look like ?

    regards, andreas
