    : Download my OS "FDOS1" from my homepage:
    www.rcfriz.de
    It contains a brand new driver for IDE-ATA disks (even managing 48-bit-adresses!).
    The initialization of the driver contains a well commented example, how to get the drive-information, which contains the length of the drive space and a lot of other details.
    If You boot this OS from FD, You can instantly see, which drives are in Your machine, the capacity, some other things and the original drive-information-sector, displayed in ASCII. Use the dump-function behind F12/memory/dump file and see the code in hexadecimal!
    Dig in the sourcecode and find evrything You desire in this respect...
