"Standard" or "Normal" mode in the BIOS: 1024 cyl = 528M
"Large" mode in the BIOS: 1024 cyl = 2G
"LBA" mode in the BIOS: 1024 cyl = 8G
The differences have to do with the number of logical heads the BIOS can
address. Standard = 16, while LBA = 255. Big difference.
...I suggest enabling LBA, just for maximum choice of where to put /boot
and such. Linux copes rather well. Hopefully, your BIOS has the option
to enable LBA or at least Large. HTH,
