The problem here is that sysinst needs to find out what kind of partioning
scheme is used (and deal properly). We can either disable that test
for x68k and always assume disklabel or the kernel emulation of it, or
we can add Human68k partition support now as an alternative scheme (quite
easily; will do that for amiga and apple partitioning schemes too).
Is there a description of how Human68k partitions look on disk somewhere?
