Thanks to those who replied to my query about reformatting a CDC Wren VII
There were several who use ncyl=1703 and nsect=80, the way the disk was
originally formatted. This would not work when I tried reformatting.
Here is the range of cyl/sect numbers that were suggested:
I tried 1926/70, and formatted the disk, but then couldnt use the last
partitions on the disk (hence my posting about newfs'ing problems).
Apparently Suns format doesnt do any checking on the size of the label
vs. the size of the disk, and wont complain if you try labelling bigger
than the disk.
The disk is now formatted and working using 1690 cyl and 80 sect.
