Question:  10.15. fdisk Says, ``Partition X has different physical/logical...''

If the partition number (X, above) is 1, this is the same problem as in fdisk: Partition 1 does not start on cylinder boundary. If the partition begins or ends on a cylinder numbered greater than 1024, this is because the standard DOS disk geometry information format in the partition table can't cope with cylinder numbers with more than 10 bits. You should see ("How To Get Linux to Work with a Disk.")
