On my first installation attempt grub was installed beyond the 1024
cylinder mark, but I assumed that my year 2000 BIOS ought to be able to
handle that. On my second unsuccessful install attempt, Centos had the
whole drive to itself, /boot was on /dev/hda1 starting at cylinder 1.
The rest of the drive anaconda used for the LVM volume.
