Thanks for all the input. Here is some info after I get from my setting.
Hardware config: Tyan 2466 Duel MP2200+ 512MB, SX6000 4 ide 120GB
7200RPM RAID5

StPeter:/mnt/part1# sfdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 351905 cylinders, 64 heads, 32 sectors/track
Warning: extended partition does not start at a cylinder boundary.
DOS and Linux will interpret the contents differently.
Warning: The first partition looks like it was made
for C/H/S=*/255/63 (instead of 351905/64/32).
For this listing I'll assume that geometry.
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0
