I didn't think dfly has an fdisk, at least not the installer. I installed
dfly onto the last slice (3rd) of a drive where:
1st slice is XP / NTFS
2nd slice is extended partition (full of several logicals for Linux
distributions and NTFS / FAT data partitions)
3rd slice is SysID 165 (created by FreeBSD 5 installer) currently has dfly
I've had no problems with this setup, so the problem sounds like it only
exists when installing on slices *before* the last one.
