Huh? I always thought storage manufacturers defined 8 MB as 8000000
bytes, which would mean that the 1.2b6 WRAP image with its 7995392
bytes should fit. I intentionally made the CF root filesystem
slightly less than 8 million bytes in the hope that it'd still fit on
an 8 MB CF card, but apparently that didn't work out (maybe due to
CHS?). Can you determine how many sectors your 8 MB CF card actually
has?
