I had tried that -o packet a couple times before, but not with the -B 

So I booted the LiveCD again and did that command.

Yeah!! Thank you, Sascha, that worked.

Can anyone quickly summarize the differences between fdisk -B, disklabel 
-B, and boot0cfg -B? How do you know which ones to use?

Now that I have lost two hours, I will try to find time so I can get back 
to working on the modular on DragonFly ...
