Obsolete does not mean no-longer-available :)

In a previous email I already mentioned using LBA. If LBA = lineair, then
the result will be a simplification of the software. The sources will be
available. So using conditional programming, the conversion could be left
out when one knows he is going to use a LBA-drive

Thanks for the info. I completely forgot about the shift-and-add method.
