Default Hard drive broken down

Can someone please explain to me how a hard drive is broken down in regards to cylinders, heads, sectors and tracks. I appreciate it.

TIA

Howstuffworks can be pretty neat, though I hate using it because of the number of ads, especially when I'm not home (no adblock).
