	sysinst scared me. When upgrading from 1.4.1 to 1.4.2
it displayed:

	Sysinst has written a disklabel to the target disk, and newfs'd and
	fsck'ed the new partitions you specified for the target disk.

just after it finished verbosely fscking my disk. It really should
not say that it has newfs'd something when it has not, it can
give users excessive heart attacks.
