You may find that with a new motherboard (possibly with a bios upgrade if
its been on the shelf a while) you don't have to worry about the 1024
cylinder limit. Otherwise I've also seen some (many) recent motherboards
that put that limit at around the 8GB point so putting your boot image first
might not be necessary.
As someone else mentioned, have a look at vmware.
