I've been struggling for hours with this thing, and getting nowhere.  How
it got so messed up, I don't know.

fdisk (linux) gives me this in answer to "p"

Disk /dev/sdd: 2199.0 GB, 2199023255552 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 267349 cylinders, total 4294967296 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc57f4e2d

And then follows up with suggestions of how to deal with such a large
disk. But it isn't that large.  It is an 80GB disc  #WD800BEVE

Any suggestions?
