Thumb Down Broken geometry(cyls,s/track,heads) of flash

Hi i've experimenting with OS on flash card, and i used my G3 as USB mass storge device - recreate partition, recreate master boot record, upload few files ... and try to boot -- boot wasnt succesful, so I googled and find some file that guided me to change geometry of my G3 flash disk
i did it, but i didnt write the manufacturer values of number heads, sectors/track and cylinders ((

So my G3 can store data now, but i cant start it -- every time i see only nice IAudio logo for looong long time until discharge batt

if there can be some kindfull man who can run linux fdisk and copy me output of connected device (e.g output of my "broken" device is:
altaran ~ # fdisk /dev/sda

Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/sda: 1040 MB, 1040580608 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 992 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 992 1015792 6 FAT16
