this might be an incredible stupid question but since i am not that familiar
with disk geometry i ask it anyway:

I just bought an Hitachi DeskStar 180GXP HDD (it's the same as IBM) which is
supposed to have a capacity of 61.4 GB but i can only get approx 58 to 59
out of it.


is there a way arounf it?

some additional data are:

model: IC35L060AVV207-0
LBA: 120.103.200 sectors
CHS: 16383/16/63

i am using an ASUS CUL2 m/b
