Red Hat HD geometry mismatch
Well, the command you gave me shows the wrong figures just as Linux showed during the attempts to install using Disk Druid and Linux FDISK. It is also wrong when I use the command:
fdisk/dev/hda now that it is installed and running.
I do get the correct C/H/S geometry with this command:
# /sbin/hdparm -i /dev/hda
So even though I'm getting one correct result, I'm gettin more incorrect results.
Someone mentioned that I should uninstall Linux and do an fdisk /mbr with a Windows startup disk since it had Windows on it before I did a regular windows fdisk and then a format. I did not use the /mbr when I did that, though.
One day after above message: Nevermind, I tried the /mbr thing and reinstalled Linux and it's still the same.
