One other quirk that I figure I'd share:
With a true cylinder/head/secor geometry of 7752/16/63, I figured
I could have multiplied # of head by 8, divided # of cylinder by 8
and get a remapped geometry of 969/128/63. Neither NetBSD
1.3_ALPHA nor Slackware's installation tool worked with 969/128/63.
Sacrificing 8 real cylinders and remapping the disk to 968/128/63
