You do realize, I hope, that on many machines (including Suns)
there is no choice about the label format on a bootable disk.
This is because the PROM interprets the disklabel.
I think the "typed partitions" are unimportant anyway;
There are lots of ways to blow away a disk, and those
without backups deserve what they get! (IMHO)
