What I did: partitionned the disk under MacOs, two hfs, the second
mke2fsck'ed in linux after insertion of the module.
That's basically what I'm always doing, see below why.

This is not possible since pdisk reports a incredible number of 512
bytes block for a 256M disk (the test drive), with a total free space
of 126G!!!
Here pdisk fail at creating the partition map, and at modifying it
I wish I could show you the output of pdisk, is it possible to redirect
output on a file, still setting the keyborad as input ?

Thx for your help :-)
