I haven't used Linux to write a WRAP image before, so I can't tell you if
"trailing garbage ignored" is OK or a sign of problems!

That's what WRAP thinks about the physical layout of the "disk". 978
Cylinders, 4 heads, 32 sectors per. What does Linux report during boot? If
it shows a different layout, you need to trick the PC into using it with
the 978/4/32 layout. That's usually done through your BIOS, not sure if
Linux allows you to mess with it in user space.
