Hard disks vary in many ways. The controller board must be told several
important parameters in order to interface properly with a particular
disk drive. The BIOS ROM on your hard disk controller board contains
several possible hard disk parameter tables. There areusually between
four and sixteen sets to choose from.

Sometime you may change drives and want to use a new parameter table
entry. They are selectable by jumpers on the board. The manufacturer
of the drive will tell you what parameters are required.

The program HDTABLE.COM will read out the parameter table from the
controller board so you can chose the entry that is best for your drive.
