The geometry is 16383,16,63 = C,H,S which didn't work by default in fdisk.
0. Add the drive to the second IDE controller; when we added it to the
first controller the cylinder count was not seen correctly in fdisk.
1. Add entry to /etc/lilo.conf: append = "hdc=16383,32,63"
2. dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hdc bs=512 count=1
3. fdisk expert mode, set heads=32
create one partition with 16383 cylinders
The available size on the disk ended up only 15.1 GB which seems a little
small for 17.3 advertised. Not sure where the rest went.
