looks like I went into a thinko on this issue somehow :-(.

While I still maintain that the changes I made to fdisk are The Right Thing
To Do (TM), it turns out that they are not neccessary to make sysinst
work after Rob's change to that.

Even the old fdisk _did_ automagically initialize the boot code
and the partition table if the disk didn't already have a valid mbr.

And yes, I did install NetBSD 1.3.2 with only the "fdisk -i" dropped from
sysinst both on a machine with and without an initialized mbr.

Anyone still objecting the pullup of the sysinst change without the fdisk
