   Revision 1.60, Mon Sep 12 15:14:54 2005 UTC (5 months, 3 weeks ago) by garys
   Corrected implication that /boot/boot0 comes from MBR.
   Added detail about fdisk and /boot/mbr to head off reader assumption
   that FreeBSD's boot manager is FreeBSD-fdisk's default boot manager.
   Added detail to statement about 512 byte boot program
   to head off debatable claims that it's untrue, and also
   to inform the reader.
   Approved by:    keramida
   Revision 1.59, Sat Jan 22 09:53:04 2005 UTC (13 months, 2 weeks ago) by simon
   It's not specific to Windows 95 to overwrite the MBR, so just say
   Windows is known to do it.
