Ok, will add something. The current scheme is : 

  oldpmac & newpmac -> pmac

  chrp_pegasos -> amiga (altough mbr is also supported)

  chrp-rs6k -> mbr (at least it seems so)

  chrp & prep -> no idea.

Ok, so i should create a partman-pegasos package, with some debconf info
stuff called in the postinst ?

There is no mkfs.affs yet, so i either need to package Roman Zippels
affstools, or implement affs fs creation in libparted. I will probably
go for the second.
