The pfdisk that came on my BSDisc CD-ROM uses the following command to
set a partion:

	<partition-number> <type> <start-cyl> <end-cyl>

So start up pfdisk on your disk, type 'L' to list the partition table,
and then type the parition number you want to change, followed by the
type, followed  by the start and end cylinders you've read from the
partition table listing.
