I'd be interested in hearing the exact steps you took with the installer
so that I can locate the problem and fix it. In particular, when you
selected "Use Part of Disk" and selected a primary partition to install
DragonFly on, did it show up as "sysid 165" (0xa5)? There's nothing in
the code that I can see that would format a primary partition as
"sysid 11" (0xb) like you describe, and there are no known issues with
installing to disks other than the first disk.
