I have seen at least one or two reports of Ubuntu users getting false
positives, and then I saw the bug report on the upstream parted bug
tracker the other day where someone claimed to have found a logical
error that caused atari_probe to return true when it shouldn't.  I
finally realized it was not an error ( at least I think not ).

I think I will at least move atari to be probed after all other labels
have failed.
