System: NetBSD blurg.ucsb.edu 1.0A NetBSD 1.0A (HENRIC) #12: Sun Apr 16 18:18:40 PDT 1995 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/src/sys/arch/amiga/compile/HENRIC amiga
Amiga 4000/040 w/ 16mb ram.
Neither newfs nor newlfs will accept disk partitions that end in anything
other than [a-h]. This can be a bit of a problem when first installing
There is a hard-coded check against 'h' in newfs.c (in both the newfs and
newlfs dirs) that should probably be replaced with ('a' + MAXPARITIONS - 1).
