Thank you for the reply.

I have created a problem for myself. I have deleted out the entry in
my partition table. The server is still running on the old partition
table that is correct, but if the system reboots I will lose the
partition in the table. I need to set my partition back the way it was.
I have a copy of the table as I want it, but am concerned that if I set
the cylinders to the orginal and write it to the table I would lose
data. Below I have pasted in the correct table (the first or top one)
and the current one that is written to memory.

Can I create a new partition from the free space, using the same
cylinders I was using before and write it to the table without losing
data?

The data I need is in the first table listed as /dev/cciss/c0d1p2
