    Just for the record - I don't think Acorn disks can have sectors
    bigger than 1k. (I never managed to get the 640Mb MO discs working, I
    had to get the 512 byte sectored 512 Mb ones instead.) I just checked
    in the PRM and it agrees with my very rusty memory.

    I have some acorn partitioned MO discs lying around if you want to see
    the first few sectors off the disc...
