In message <>, you write: 

-> I believe that this PR is incorrect.
-> The `c' partition is supposed to correspond with the NetBSD partition
-> in the DOS partition table.
-> The `d' partition is supposed to be the whole disk.
-> As far as I can tell, you have them reversed.

	I'll take your word for it, but how long has this been like this?

	I still have one of my drives labeled the same as it was under 0.8
	and probably 386bsd 0.1 before that and it does have the partitions
	"reversed" at least by your above definition... And I know that the
	drives were labeled like that for a reason.  Was this reason just
	because the disklabel code was so f**ed up before?

	I have a strong feeling that you're right, but am curious why the
	hell I've been doing it backwards for so damn long...
