In man fdisk(8), it refers to
"Note that bootable FreeBSD slices (the ``*/*'' file system) must lie
completely within the first 1024 cylinders; if this is not true, booting
may fail."
       my confusion is whether this limit is aimed at  just i386 platform
or all platforms that freebsd supports. Could you please tell me the actual
condition ?
