the ones from util-linux-2.10s.tar.gz (or .src.rpm?)
cfdisk and fdisk seems to work good. for instance, sfdisk make a core!

I did need it in the past, but in fact, I've done what I want w/
the bsd one. it was when I upgrade MaxBlast which is a software
BIOS to see large drives. it changed the IDs of all (DOS?) primary
and partitions to 0x55 and FreeBSD didn't like it at all. the
problem is that ID didn't make a difference between primary (0xC)
and extended (0xF) partitions...
