its a bit annoying to have to have some silly partition for booting,
but this is the way i see it:

root]# mac-fdisk -l /dev/hda | grep Apple_B
/dev/hda2         Apple_Bootstrap bootstrap              1600 @ 64 (800.0k)  NewWorld bootblock

you never have to mount it, or modify it yourself. as far as i care
its no different then the empty 1k block at the start of my root

its not really any worse then a partition table that lives in a
partition defined in its own partition table ;-)
