The partition type code -> OS name translation table is hardwired into /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot0/boot0.s, the source for the master bootstrap program. These are the current mappings: parition codes string ------------------ -------- 1,4,6,11,12,14 DOS 99 UNIX 131 Linux 159,166,169 BSD 165 FreeBSD There isn't enough free space left in boot0 to add any more mappings. (It has to fit in a 512 byte disk sector). You could make space by deleting some of the current mappings or other boot0 program features. I suspect that you don't want to get into that. If you want to create your own customized bootstrap menu, you might look into /usr/ports/sysutils/grub. If you are curious, you can find a larger partition code table in /usr/src/sbin/i386/fdisk/fdisk.c. For an even larger compilation, see http://www.win.tue.nl/~aeb/partitions/partition_types-1.html Dan Strick [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
