Hi all:

Trying to write a partition table using fdisk supplied in the
installation DVD of FreeBSD 8.0 i386 200905 snapshot.

Should we write new partition table ? [n] y
fdisk: Class not found

When i again run 'fdisk' it should the old partition table.

What exactly does 'Class not found' mean ?

There is no mention of the 'Class' in fdisk man page at

Can the experienced BSD guys explain ?
