Description Dale Lovelace 2000-03-17 15:07:21 UTC
After a fresh "everything" install of Zoot on Alpha:


[root@test162 /root]# mount
/dev/sda6 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hda on /mnt/cdrom type iso9660 (ro,nosuid,nodev)

[root@test162 /root]# fdisk /dev/sda
Device contains neither a valid DOS partition table, nor Sun or SGI
disklabel
Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only,
until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content won't be recoverable.


Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 521 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System

Command (m for help): q

[root@test162 /root]# fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 521 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes


BSD label for device: /dev/sda
