sbin/fdisk_pc98 fdisk.8 fdisk.c
Fixes and new features:
o Merge the -I switch from i386 verison to initialize the partition table
to use the maximum amount possible for a single FreeBSD table.
o Improve warning when the geom method fails (which I think it
always will until geom_pc98 is updated to respond to this ctl message)
o when writing out the boot sector, we have to write out a minimum of
1024 bytes or the sector size. This is different than the i386 case where
we need to write out a minimum of 512 bytes (which is also the minimum
sector size). We already handle this difference on reading, but didn't
in writing, so attempting to write a new partition table would fail.
o Add MID to the -s output, since pc98 users are likely interested in
both of these parameters.
# I can now initialize disks on my pc98 machine either by -I or by
# manually entering the parameters. I don't know if fdisk -B works or not,
# since I'm not willing to risk my only working boot disk to test it..
