All my disks have bootblocks and (spare) boot partitions.  All the
bootblocks are DD mode.  I don't see any point in using obsolete fdisk
tables.  (There's IMHO only one purpose obsolete fdisk tables are good
for, co-operation with other operating systems in the same machine.
None of my machines uses anything else than FreeBSD.)

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
