rc2 install on ip22



Hi,
while installing with the rc2 install image i found this bug. Basically it makes it impossible
to create an usable sgi disklabel.


The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 4340.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
   (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Expert command (m for help): Building a new SGI disklabel. Changes will remain in memory o,until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content will be unrecoverably lost.

Trying to keep parameters of partition 0.
Do You know, You got a partition overlap on the disk?
