Those blocks are 1024 bytes each, so you'll see that "+" when the partition contains an odd number of 512-byte sectors. That's all it means. The root cause is that the usual pseudo-geometry used is 63 sectors/track and 255 heads, which results in a "cylinder" with an odd number of sectors. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address.
