I need to set up an IDE/ATA hard disk on my PC, but my BIOS doesn't have autodetection capability and I don't know what the disk geometry is
Explanation: You are trying to configure a new (or old!) hard disk on your system. You don't know what the drive geometry is, and your BIOS is old and doesn't provide autodetection capabilities.
Diagnosis: Usually you can find the information you are looking for (cylinders, heads, sectors) by looking on the web page of the manufacturer of the drive.
