I'm a bit confused.

I tried to read partition info from hex-dump of first block and compare that 
with the values from /var/log/installer/partman ...

According to partition info from wiki the biggest number of chs is 0x3FF, 
which is 1023 decimal - and partman output contains entries like:
	(91201,0,0)	(91201,80,62)

So is there another way to interpret entries from partition table?

kind regards
