This is about the i386 platform.
My main op.sys. is Os/2 and I use it's fdisk to partition
my hard drives. It's fdisk will only accept max four (4)
partitions per hard drive, primary and extended together.
But OpenBSD can use 16 partitions on one HD, at least some
textfile at one of the OpenBSD ftp mirrors told me.
My question is: can I use Os/2's fdisk to create four partitions
and leave some space left for OpenBSD use, all this on one HD,
i.e. boot five op.sys from my first hard drive?
Os/2's fdisk yelled quite loudly about my previous v2.1
OpenBSD installation all the time. That installation had
a whole hard drive, but Os/2's fdisk said that that disk's
partition table was corrupt.
Maybe I'm hoping for too much.

24 out of 25 south-american banks, Tomahawk cruise missiles
and US nuclear submarines uses OS/2. How about you?
