When partitioning a large hard drive (bigger than 8 GB), HDToolbox
sometimes does not read the correct number of cylinders when installing the
drive. If you don't recognise this at once and install it with the too
small size, there is no way to change your mistake afterwards without
wiping all partitions.

Well, now there is. This program will read the real disk size and allows
to correct the number of cylinders without deleting any partition.

It also allows to reduce the number of cylinders so that the drive looks
smaller than 4 GB, so you can use it with OS 3.1 and below without any
risk.

Installation:  copy it to wherever you want

Usage:  just run it.  The GUI should be self-explaining and I made it as
        fool-proof as I could.
