9 Hi Mike,
11 I believe this is due to the alignment code in newer versions of fdisk
12 (2048 sector = 1 megabyte)
14 I think you can use the expert menu in fdisk ("x" from the main menu)
15 to achieve what you're trying to do. I can't tell you the exact steps
16 but I am 99.9% sure it can be done.
