First I would use the file command on the ontrack container. It may give the offset to the start of the partitions.
Attach a loop device. Include an offset. Then check the loop device.
If the CHS addresses in your second link are absolute locations on the disk, I think you would use for the first partition,
sudo /sbin/losetup -fs /dev/sdc -o $(16*63*512)
assuming 512 bytes per sector in the fixdisk listing and that the disk contents are linear.
The command will return the lo device used. You can use file -s or mount with the loop device instead. E.g. sudo file -s /dev/loop1
I played with a computer like that back in 97 or so. I think you'd be better off trying to get a physical computer with an old bios and try to image the old system back to a disk where they tried this on. I remember trying linux on that deal too and never could figure out a way to access it. The disk doesn't end up being a normal structure as far as I can recall. Part of the bios and maybe parts of the first part of the disk were used together. As you can see, it didn't say with us for very long cause it sucked. It was real difficult to backup and image.
