Stupid driver/partitioning program (Later partitioning program seems to have some kind of weird geometry autodetection option)

Any sane IDE driver/formatter uses LBA mode and ignores geometry completely or tells the drive that I'd like to use CHS mode with this geometry, please (Using Initialize Drive Parameters ATA command) or at least ask the drive for its default CHS geometry and use it. (Identify Drive ATA command)

So far all other IDE drivers have been sane compared to AdIDE.

Physical geometry GUI may be added later if there are other IDE/SCSI drivers that require it.
