YES!  If you do: "bpsh 0 fdisk /dev/hda"  set the first node the way
    you want and then if you do "beofdisk -q" it will remember this
    partition scheme in /etc/beowulf/fstab/hda:c:h:s (where c,h,s is ...)
    Then doing a "beofdisk -w" to write that partition scheme to the
    whole cluster.

    Note the main prompt in fdisk flushes correctly, but some of the others
    prompts can't be seen, so you'll have to remember the order of prompts
    from memory.  (I'll fix this ASAP.)

	Hope this helps,
