I am working on a small problem here. I have a 2 Gb Quantum XP32150 that I
would like to connect to my hp300 running NetBSD. I found the following
information when the drive was still connected to my Mac:
Blocks: 4 199 760
Cylinders: 3 922
Now when the hp300 system boots up with the SCSI disk attached it reports a
cylinder count of 3 907.
sd0 at oscsi0 targ 0 lun 0: <Quantum, XP32150, 55D4> (SCSI-2)
sd0: 3907 cylinders, 10 heads, 4199760 blocks, 512 bytes/block
I was able to fill in the disklabel to this extent:
total sectors: 4199760
headswitch: 0 # milliseconds
track-to-track seek: 0 # milliseconds
Now the sectors/cylinder should be simple math
4199760/3907 = 1074.93217302 ???
So what do I do?
