I finally build a custom kernel for my notebook to install 1.3.2
(it needed PCMCIA tweaking)
I was right... if you do the allocations in megabytes, then the rounding
may cause the partitions to overlap.
In megabytes, it says:
part size offset end
a 350 100 450
b 100 450 550
In sectors, it says:
a 717696 205632 923328
b 205632 922320 1127952
In cylinders, it is:
a 712 204 916
b 204 915 1119
It appears that the rounding to deal with putting things on cylinder
boundaries isn't working quite right.
Is there a way to test sysinst with fake geometry on a host without
screwing up the host?
