nonsense C/H/S values for CF (used in ide)

I have a board with gx1, pc97317 and cs5530a with one ide slot. I've been
booting linux with Phoenix bios so far with no problems, and I tried
linuxBIOS to boot linux. but I noticed strange C/H/S values like "init_drive
sectors_per_track=[768], num_heads=[768], num_cylinders=[768]". and it
failed to boot.

does anyone have similar problems like this? Phoenix bios sees the device
and read the values correctly...
