NetBSD's i386 port supports upto 16 partitions per disk now. Before you
can use this you have to update your complete source, rebuild kernel
and userland and invoke the latest "src/etc/etc.i386/MAKEDEV" in
"/dev" to create the additional device nodes. As long as you don't
use more than 8 partition per disk you should be able to downgrade
to an ealier NetBSD version without any problems.
