Description eduardo.viruena 2000-11-17 11:50:01 UTC
Windows 9x/FAT 32 records are displayed as "???" when "bootinst"
write the boot manager from win9x's msdos mode.  I mean, these
partitions are displayed as:

			Fx:  ???

But, it does not happen when /stand/sysinstall writes the boot manager.
Windows 9x/FAT32 are displayed as:   

			Fx:   Windows


I suppose new entries must be added to the bootinst's boot manager
specifying the new "sysids" used by FAT32 file systems
How-To-Repeat: Install windows 9x in some partition of your hard disk.
Install FreeBSD in another one.
Reboot your computer.  You will see the display manager prompt
You will see something like this:
		F1:	Windows
		F2:	FreeBSD
Run windows in msdos mode.
Using "bootinst" write the boot manager
You will see something like this:
		F1:	???
		F2:	FreeBSD
