    The first bit is for i-number 41, yes.
    if(n >= 41) then to check if i-number n is allocated:
        map[(n-41)/8] & (1 << ((n-41)%8)

    if I read the bit ordering correctly.

    Almost, there is no i-number 0.  The first one is i-number 1 which
    starts at byte zero of block 2.

       inode-block(n) = (n+31)/16
       inode-offset(n) = 32 * ((n+31)%16)

    sounds like it.

Sounds like you got it, except for the i-numbering starting at 1.
