Use `wd0d'.  If you use any partition other than `d', it must be a
valid NetBSD partition in a valid NetBSD disklabel.

I am personally not fond of the way this all works.  I would much
rather that we either use a DOS partition table or a BSD partition
table, but not the bastard hybrid we currently have.  However, there
is backward contempibility to consider.
