Description Michael Hideo 2008-06-02 21:22:23 EDT
much easier to use M suffix on dd.  Use count=0 instead of count=1 to avoid
writing the single block of zeros.  With these two changes, the examples become:


 sparse:     dd if=/dev/zero of=FileName.img bs=1M seek=4096 count=0

 non-sparse: dd if=/dev/zero of=FileName.img bs=1M count=4096
