I am using the Adaptec AHA-2740T eisa fast SCSI controller. I read about 
the extended translation in the manual, and I sure wish I had known about 
this earlier. The real solution is to turn off the extended translation, as
the DOS slice would be less than 1 gig. I will try to use the Geometry option
and I hope it works, as yet once again, I might have to nuke the drive and 
start over. :-((

Thanks for your excellent and fast support.
