I recently bought an external drive from APS, in which Quantum 540M
drive is sitting.  And mkfs gives me weird geometry for the drive,
which is 125 sectors/track, 4 heads, and 2700+ cylinders, and that'd
give me (125 * 4 * 2700 * 512) / 2^20 = 660M capacity for the 540M

Does anyone know the actual geometry for this drive?

Thanks in advance.


(Don't ask me about their APS PowerTool 3.0... I haven't used that one.
Instead, I'm using 2.7.3 that I ftp'd...)
