geometry mismatch?? What does this mean?
I have been having problems getting any bootloader to work so I have been trying to diagnose the error code that lilo produced (L with half a screen of 01).
From the sites Ive visited they say "This condition usually indicates a media failure or a geometry mismatch" what does geometry mismatch mean and how can I correct it. The drive in question is a IBM 30gb drive and I have ran the IBM "Drive Fitness Test" to check for bad sectors and it did not find any (are there any good open source utilities that I can check this with?).
Thanks for any help you can offer
