    SubjectRe: Answer (Re: Cylinder limits jumper for drives over 32GB)
    > Andries.........I have your answer to JUMPON.EXE.

    That is good.
    What is the answer?

    The question was: What precisely does JUMPON.EXE do?

    [No doubt it changes the firmware in such a way that the
    jumper truncates LBAcapacity instead of the default logical
    number of cylinders. But it does something more, and I
    conjectured that it might effectively do a non-volatile
    SET MAX ADDRESS so that we can do READ NATIVE MAX ADDRESS
    and a volatile SET MAX ADDRESS and get rid of this restriction.
    Is this indeed the case? ]
