Using ADLO with Linuxbios

	dd if=elfimage of=/dev/hdc bs=4096 seek=1
	gives me an error "/dev/hdc invalid argument".

	But "dd if=elfimage of=/dev/hdc" works as in it shows me the in/out
records. However this is overwriting the partition table. when I do a
	fdisk -l /dev/hdc
it says "disk /dev/hdc doesn't contain a valid partition table"
	Any suggestions on what could be done??

I've never had that happen. Weird.
