ISTR that I needed to keep the Whole Disk partition when using Sun
disklabels - yep, there it is.  I also STR that I had problems when
I removed it and that it was created by default (with fdisk?).  As I
recall, I removed it the first time, had problems (that may have been
entirely unrelated), and when I repartitioned the disk I left in the
Whole Disk partition and everything worked fine.

I'm sure someone will correct me if it turns out to be entirely unneeded.
