add the line hdxx=cylinders,heads,sectors
where these parameters correspond to the
disk linux should see
cylinders reported by bios at boot (enter bios config and look)
heads reported at boot
sectors reported at boot

add to the boot line for either lodlin or lilo as appropriate.

This will tell the kernel the correct disk configuration
and allow mke2fs to operate properly.
