| Fair enough. I, and the others though it did a seek.

I think that's part of the hypothesis, but if we can read the
first sector, it should be trivial to decode the partition table,
if it's a typical DOS/Windows/PC-type partition table.

If someone can read the first sector, I'll be glad to decode it;
just send it.
