Installing linux on > 1024 Cyl

1. Linux install problems > 1024 cyl hd...

Hello,
I read the previous article in this newsgroup concerning disks that are
bigger than 500MB. I have been trying(unsuccessfully) to install linux on
a 250MB partition of my 1080MB Hard drive. Used Fips to partition the HD
and then booted up using the linux root/boot disks. Ran the following
commands:
fdisk /dev/sda

Got the message:
Disk is greated than 1024cylinders May have problems.
Ignored above message.

Tried to run setup
It complained about not having a disk partition flagged as Linux Native.
Ran fdisk /dev/sda and changed the 2nd partition type to linux native.
While I was in fdisk checked the partitions out of curiosity and got the
following errors:

Device    boot    begin  start  end  blocks  ID  sys
/dev/sda1  *       1       1     780 798704   6  DOS 16Bit=>32M
Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
Physical=(389,127,32)  Logical=(779,63,32)
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:
physical=(389,127,32)  Should be (389,63,32)

/dev/sda2         391     781    1030 256000  82 Linux Native
Partition 2 has different physical/logical beginnings:
physical=(390,0,1)     logical=(780,0,1)
Partition 2 has different physical/logical endings:
physical=(514,127,32)  logical=(1029,63,32)
partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary:
physical=(514,127,32)   should be (514,63,32)

What the hell is going on? Is Linux really unable to handle a disk bigger
than 1024MB?
Do I need to manually edit the partition tables to reflect the partition
sizes? If I do can anyone tell me how I might go about doing this?

Please post/email me with responses.



Thanks,
Mike Smith
