By the "(int) that matters" do you mean the label byte known as LAB.VFL?  If 
so, that's a bit field, and bit 0 indicates two-sided, bit 1 indicates 96 
TPI (or 80 cylinder).  So the value "2" would mean "one-sided 80-cylinder".  
Please take a look again, and if you're still sure it's wrong, please tell 
me the exact byte(s) in error (by symbolic name or by offset into the

How did you compute this?  If you divide LAB.SIZ (800) by LAB.SPG (4) you 
get 200 - the number of groups.

Anyway, please check both things once more and let me know...
