While this is correct, it's no real problem. You can use PC-style partition
tables on all disks except the disks where sash resides and where it loads
the kernel from.
PC-style partition table can actually be quite handy. When bringing up
Linux on the Indy for the first time from a disk I prepared the disk hooked
on to a Linux PC. After that I just hooked the disk on to the Indy and
had the first Indy booting from disk. Except DaveM, that is.
