NTFS partitions show up as OS/2 partitions.

Hi people,

I recently tore down a Windows NT 4.0 server that used NTFS on two
partitions. When I ran (Linux) fdisk, I noticed that both partitions
showed up as OS/2 HPFS partitions. The machine has never had OS/2
installed on it!

It doesn't matter much, since I deleted the partitions, and created an
ext2 partition. But I can't stop wondering about it (anyway, now you
know there might be some wierd problem). Anyone got a good explanation?

Best regards
