	pmax NetBSD-1.3.2 sysinst
System: netbsd 1.3.2 pmax

	The sysinst menu that allows you to select which partition to change
	has an annoying off-by-one error beginning with menu option c.  The
	program does not want you to change the c partition, so the c menu
	option is mapped to the d partition and so on down the line.  It
	would be nice if the menu option matched the partition letter ex-
	actly, as it does for a and b.

	This is a *really* minor complaint.
	Invoke sysinst and drive through its menus to the point where it
	allows you to change the disk partition table.
	The c menu option could just put up a message stating that changes
	to the c partition are disallowed.  Other solutions are possible.
