[lug] Cylinders and pertitioning

I'm installing a 20 gig drive that I'd originally used for solaris. The
drive is set for 2491 cylinders  and I'm trying to get it back to 1024. 

Can anyone tell me how to do this? I used fdisk and set it for 1024 but it
won't write that setting.    I'd think that merely setting the cylinder
count would throw off some other setting but I'm not sure how this all
balances out.
