There you go! Actually, I'm only surmising that IDE0#7 is _past_
1024 cylinders. My partitions are all contiguous, with NTFS being
first at 15G. I'm going to find a small HDD and slave it to my primary
controller. I'll partition _it_ with a FAT partition and leave the
rest for AosFS. In the meantime I'll be booting off a diskette. No
worries there!
