[linux-lvm] Docs on PC disk partition tables?

The lilo and fdisk code, as painful as it is, pretty well documents the 
PC partition table interface and has source code for an MBR to boot 
typical partitions from a partition table.

I have heard "The  Undocumented PC" might contain this information as 
well, but I don't have that specific book.  Might check at a library.

Good luck!
