I carved out a Ext2 partition on Windows using PartionMagic. Now I would
like to mount the partition on NetBSD. I don't know what to put in the
``cpg/sgs'' field, and I don't see anything in disklabel man page for
``cpg/sgs.'' Well, I filled out everything else, and I put EXT2FS for the
``fstype'' field. After exiting the editor, I got a message saying
"disklabel: line 31: warning, unknown file system type: EXT2FS"
But I have booted GENERIC_LAPTOP for the Apr 9 snapshot for NetBSD 2.0 and
it supports the Ext2fs.
Why I am getting this message? Will I be able to mount this partition?
Also, does exiting the editor automatically write the label on the hard drive?
