Are you certain iv -i won't work?  I recently used it to format the second
hard drive on my system.  But initially it doesn't like the descriptor it
was told to use which came out of /usr/lib/iv.  I had to change the 'type'
field to "HD2" before it was happy.  I may have changed the 'name' field
also.  Run iv -d to get a usable descriptor, then edit that to taste.
