I'm having a difficulty reading my freebsd partitions with
linux 2.1.25 (and its been a problem for a long time).

System-commander doesn't have a problem understanding these partitions.

But all flavors of fdisk sees them as b5, not a5.

Changing them to a5 doesn't change the behavior at the next boot.
I changed genhd.c to recognize a5 or b5 as bsd partitions, but
mount doesn't seem to work.
