[maemo-users] Partitioning a flash card

Hi all,

Reading the wiki page about partitioning a flash card (http://wiki.maemo.org/Partitioning_a_flash_card ) I found that it says that a
VFAT partition must be declared of type 6. Is this correct? I thought vfat (FAT32) was type 0x0b.

Running sfdisk on the internal memory card will show this:

Nokia-N810-23-14:~# sfdisk -l /dev/mmcblk0

Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 61440 cylinders, 4 heads, 16 sectors/track
Units = cylinders of 32768 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0

   Device Boot Start     End   #cyls    #blocks   Id  System
/dev/mmcblk0p1          0+  61439   61440-   1966072    b  W95 FAT32
/dev/mmcblk0p2          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/mmcblk0p3          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/mmcblk0p4          0       -       0          0    0  Empty

which seems to confirm my supposition.

Did I get it wrong, or is it just an error in the wiki page?
