RE: Atari TT installation failed on installboot


FWIW, the config that I use and test regularly (on a tt030) has the full disk 
devoted to NetBSD, no AHDI. So if it's not absolutely necessary to keep the 
AHDI partition, just get rid of it and you're good to go.

But yeah, it does sound like the installer should give you the explicit option 
to install or not install the boot blocks. Maybe file a PR?
