I'm having a problem making two different partitions co-exist on
one disk... I figure that others have had this problem too...
I have a WD 1.2 gig disk (IDE) and it is installed as 2484 cyl,
16 Heads, 63 Sec Per track... ( according to the BIOS ).
I have two partitons one thats about 700 mb and one thats
about 500 mb... The 500 mb partition is a fat16...
When I run pfdisk to try to label the disk, the disk
geometry that pfdisk returns is:
620 cyl, 64 Heads, 63 Sec Per Track...
I'm assuming that the BIOS is doing some kind of disk translation
to make the full 1.2 gigs of disk avaliable... But NetBSD (and
all other unixes (?) don't deal with the disk translation...
and upon installing NetBSD 1.1, I get a 700 mb fat partition that
du and df shows about ~200 mb's
Could someone explain what is really happening here?
