Last time I looked the only thing the i386 'c' partition was used for
was to protect the labelsector.
It wasn't possible to access the disk through it!
Move a disk from a system where 'c' is the whole disk and 'd'
available for normal use and you have a 'slight' problem :-)
This is all a historic mess!
