What else has had its fingers on that disk and its label prior to

Well I used the Boot Camp Assistant (basically a partitioner) from  
within Mac OS X which resized my disk for "installing Windows". So it  
formatted it with FAT32 but I just tried overwriting it with DF.

And/or - do you have a disk that nothing Apple-ish has yet touched?
Not sure what you mean by this. Do you mean another internal disk? If  
so, then no. I just have a 120GB volume of which 15GB is reserved for  
DF the rest is an HFS+ volume for Mac OS X. I also have a 2GB USB  
flash drive. Do you think I should I try that?
