Another fdisk partition for 386/ix.

The 386/ix HPDD really expects only to find one Unix partition per disk.
I expect it wouldn't be too hard to trick fdisk into making another one,
but I'd be astonished if you could mount it sucessfully.  This isn't really
ISC's fault, as they inherited the layout scheme from AT&T.
