Right, I've got the files from disks 'a1' up to 'x1' into .IMA images, but 'x2' is too big to fit onto a 1.44MB image. What's to do there?

Also, I'm having a pit of trouble partitioning the hard disk. In VirtualPC, I've given it a 256MB hard disk, which it seems to recognise, but won't partition. The message I get (from FDISK) is this:

Code:
Command (m for help): n
Command action
   e   extended
   p   primary partition (1-4)
p
Partition number(1-4): 1
First cylinder (1-520): 1
Last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-520): 520
Warning: partition 1 has an odd number of sectors.
Warning: The Linux/MINIX filesystem cannot currently use 393089 sectors of this
partition


Is there a setting, or something, I've to change in the advanced options in FDISK?

Thanks.

Make the root partition smaller than 64MB. Enter "+60M" when it asks for the size.

Thanks, but it still says the partition has an odd number of sectors.

They're not kidding - you really do need to know your stuff to set these things up, eh :) ? or maybe I'd be better off putting it on a real machine?
