Because I need to produce a CD-ROM with automatized NetBSD install for a
computer in case of crashes to rebuild the system automagically for persons
who do not have a good knowledge of computing things ("put the CD in the drive
at the boot, and let it boot and install automatically").
I will then write a little HOWTO (and give it there to review if interested).

Is it also the case for MBR partitions?
Is it possible to modify MBR partitions without running fdisk?
