I bought an IBM aptiva P60 some time ago and finally decided to
install Linux. So I bought myself a large IDE drive. 1Gig.
When I started my partitioning on the large IDE drive, I get error
messages "Partition not falling on correct cylinder etc". So I looked
in the red installation book and saw that section on large IDE drive.
Now, the problem is I don't know where to look for the CMOS of my
machine. At boot time, I type in F1 to get the Configuration/setup
menu...but nowhere does it mention cylinders, heads, sectors
Does anyone know how/where these are stored ?
(BTW, when I did an fdisk on the large IDE drive, it does tell me that
the IDE drive has 2477 cylinders, 16heads and 63 sectors..)
Thanks for any help.
