I don't understand why 128 heads.  64 heads is the more compatible version.

I presume the notion of partition 1 and 4 is to deal with things that
have an odd notion of zipdisks.  I have personally not seen any devices
which will only boot with partition 1 or only with partition 4, if you
have any such information I would appreciate it.

Part of me also wonders if using EXTLINUX might not be easier for you, too.
