Thanks a lot for your very patient and detailed reply.
On 2nd Jan, 2001, there was this announcement that NetBSD's i386 port now
has 16 partitions support. Just to verify things, if I were to download
the 3 months old snapshot, and the -current sources of Jan 24th, I should
be able to compile (and do whatever magic) such that the installed NetBSD
would have 16 partitions support. I hope that is correct.
BTW, in case you are an i386 user, and have done the above, does it mean
that I would have to compile my user-land again or something ? Or do they
automatically start working with 16 partitions. (My mind tells me they
should work, but my heart asks for a re-assuarance of sorts. :)
