I took a look there before (and again as well), but it didn't leave me
feeling confident about partitions.  Everything in there seems to talk
about the first block of the device, which I took to be /dev/sda rather
than /dev/sda1 (say).  When people are mounting the CDROM, they'll be
mounting the ``whole'' device, so block 0 is full of voldesc goodness;
what's in block 0 of an EFS partition?  A dummy voldesc?
