The recent discussion about the two-floppy install problem on the i386 gave 
me an idea.

One nice thing that could be added to the install script would be to prompt
the user for the geometry of a MS-DOS partition, and add that to the disklabel. 
Why not make it automatic and not ask the users about the geometry of a MS-DOS 
partitions(for dumb DOS users like me who did not know much about the geometry)?
Would it be too much work?  At least displaying the information about the 
offsets and size of the DOS partition would help the user.

Just a suggestion.
