Judging from the "HISTORY" file in util-linux 2.9g, fdisk is still
being worked on.  There are quite a few entries related to fdisk
refering to versions newer than 2.8.1 (which is in slink). I also
notice that fdisk can do aix, bsd, sgi and sun disklabels in addition
to Microsoft disk labels.  Does cfdisk do all of these?
