if by "file types" is meant INSTALL's "dostypes" is meant
hdtoolbox's "Identifier" field, i've set them to

uh, "BSDA" for what, Partition Device Name? i called
them bsd-local, bsd-usr, bsd-swap, and bsd-root.

it didn't mention any BSDA, BSDB...

oh heavens, i'm a long way from trying to run it from a netbsd partition :)
BTW: the problem is probably something to do with my Quantum;
i discovered this morning i could boot if i disconnected it.
so i guess now i have to find the FAQ...
while we're on about partitions - is there any particular physical
order recommended? i've got root, swap, usr, and local in that order
from the high cylinders downward. is that good? maybe swap between
usr and local? i mean, now's the time for me to change it...
