Currently mac-fdisk is default on Apple/IBM and parted is the default on
Pegasos. I don't see any reason to use parted for all arches as
parted-1.6.8-r1 which is on 2004.1 seems to support all required filesystems.
It would also make it easier to maintain the handbook since we wouldn't need
two separate sections, and there are some nice GUI:s for it as well.
Pieter, any comments? ;)
