Providing the capacity is larger than that, you can, during BIOS detect, turn auto off and enter manually the CHS values, you want. This could lead to some access problems as not all the drive boundries and platter limits will be correct, but you may be ok. You could try a low format to align the disk geometry to suit you requirements, but a true low format often wipes a drives access out alltogether, so I really wouldn't recommend it. As a matter of interest why do you need to alter the drives geometry to a particular CHS, there probably is a much easier solution to your problem, if you feel like posting it.
