110There are some partitions named like this: <path>Apple_Driver43,
111Apple_Driver_ATA, Apple_FWDriver, Apple_Driver_IOKit,
112Apple_Patches</path>. If you are not planning to use MacOS 9 you can
113delete them, because MacOS X and Linux don't need them.
114You might have to use parted in order to delete them, as mac-fdisk can't delete them yet.

228To make sure everything is ok, you should run mac-fdisk once more and check whether all the partitions are there.
229If you don't see any of the partitions you created, or the changes you made, you should reinitialize your partitions by pressing "i" in mac-fdisk.
230Note that this will recreate the partition map and thus remove all your partitions.
