Someone posted the location of a document that deals with cylinders
larger than 1024, but I some how misplaced that post. Could anyone who
know about this please send it to me. Thanks!

1. cyl > 1024

I have a disk with 1057 cyl's. I configured 1024 through 1057 as swap
space. However, im concerned that fdisk reports an overlap between
these cyl's and cyl 0 and up. It reports a logical cyl of 1024 with
a physical cyl of 0. Is there an overlap or is this my imagination?
