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.
