beofdisk -w is not updating the partition table on slave nodes.

I've been told what I am doing is correct but I am still getting errors when
trying to do a beoboot-install -a hda. What I get is this:
# beoboot-install -a hda
Creating boot images...
Building phase 1 file system image in /tmp/beoboot.2488...
ram disk image size (uncompressed): 1452K
Kernel image is: "/tmp/.beoboot-install.2487".
Initial ramdisk is: "/tmp/.beoboot-install.2487.initrd".
Failed to read partition table from hda on node 0.
# bpsh 0 /sbin/sfdisk -l /dev/hda
Disk /dev/hda: 1247 cylinders, 255 heads, 63 sectors/track
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0
Device Boot Start End #cyls #blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 0+ 0 1- 8001 84 OS/2 hidden C: drive

/dev/hda3 130 1246 1117 8972302+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 0 - 0 0 0 Empty
Any ideas why beoboot-install isn't working correctly? I don't know what I did
correctly to actually get the partition table to write to the disk but it is now
written as seen above. Is there enough space on /dev/hda1? This was created
using the beofdisk -d option.
