But disklabel/fdisk can't even accept MB's as a unit.  Until they grow
the functionality of the NetBSD and OpenBSD versions of them, sysinstall

This includes those with a bummed /usr that needs to install a new disk
to get it back.

That would be OK, *once* our fdisk/disklable grows some modern [heck even
late 1990's] user interface.
