RE: [vox-tech] Are those values in kilobytes?

I am not sure why you want to know the size of the cylinder for your hard 
disk and specifically for the command fdisk.  But, just FYI, fdisk 
supports entry of partition sizes in megabytes and other forms.  When it 
prompts for the last cylinder location, you can enter in +320M and that 
will atomatically set the last cylinder to create a 320MB partition or 
close to it.
