Description Eric Paris 2009-03-23 16:08:57 EDT
I used the custom partition screen from F11 on March 23 to lay out my system.  I created a 250M fixed length /boot directory.  After the install got going I checked in vt2 what the output of fdisk -l was to make sure things were as I expected.  I see something odd: "Partition 1 does not end on a cylinder boundary"

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000948c5

  Device   Boot     Start           End    Blocks     Id  System
/dev/sda1    *          1            32    256000     83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/sda2              32          2582  20480000     83  Linux
and on and on and on

I don't know what it means, or if it matters, but I've never seen a message from fdisk like that before.....
