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.) -- cheers, J"org .-.-. --... ...-- -.. .
