From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   cluster
  
      An elementary unit of allocation of a disk made
      up of one or more physical {blocks}.
  
      A {file} is made up of a whole number of possibly
      non-contiguous clusters.   The cluster size is a tradeoff
      between space efficiency (the bigger is the cluster, the
      bigger is on the average the wasted space at the end of each
      file) and the length of the {FAT}.
