:Yep, but I think Matt was against it. I wouldn't change the default
:itself, but instead modify the installer to use -C by default (or at
:least make it an option).
Using -C will break more things then it will fix. Hard drives
have been large enough to overflow the CHS fields for years now,
and wrapped values can confuse the hell out of bioses probably even
worse now verses using all 1's.
