Has anybody put Linux on Thinkpad 720? W/ 160MB disk?
I tried a slackware-compatible bootdisk from peipa.cs.uk (something
like that) that would automagically detect the disk paramters.
It came back with 64 heads, and then proceeded to croak that
the head count was > 16.
Running PCTOOLS on this disk gives the following geometry
head=64, cylinders=161, sectors/cyl = 32
With 512 bytes/sector that gives me 168,820,7xx bytes.
THis is an ESDI disk. If it was IDE with proper sector translation,
I could divide the heads by four and multiply the cylinders by
4 to get the same storage, but that doesn't work.
Any good ideas out there? Anybody done this?
