Is that actually true for Linux?
I present as evidence:
centauri:root:~$ uname -a
Linux centauri 2.4.18 #12 Sat May 11 12:53:48 BST 2002 alpha unknown
centauri:root:~# fdisk /dev/sda
# start end size fstype [fsize bsize cpg]
a: 2 154 153 ext2
b: 155 220 66 swap
c: 221 1018 798 ext2
Is this going to cause problems somewhere?
I believe that Tru64 and *BSD do require c to be the wholedisk though
(certainly my FreeBSD Alpha has that, although I actually know very
little about FreeBSD really).
