   Yeah, but that only works if they start on the same sector.   
According to the information in chapter 15 of the netbsd guide,  
sparc64 wants the swap partition on the "real" disk to be aligned to  
a cylinder boundary, which in this case moves the start of it as well  
as reducing the length.

   But, thanks for that thought.  I could try something else to look  
further into the b partitions I suppose...
