Thanks Christos, boy do I look stupid. I guess I've just been copying old
labels in the past and just lucked out that the partitions I wanted to use
had 4.2BSD set for the fstype. I don't build new disks very often so maybe
I've just forgotten. This behavior sure makes sense and is an excellent
safety feature. Sorry about wasting the mailing-list bandwidth. -- Ken
