In /sbin is a program called mfdisk. I assumed it
worked like the i386 Linux "fdisk" program. Instead
it deleted the partition table and re-created only
partition 1 & 2, leaving the large partition 3 entry
empty, all without any warning or prompting.
In my case, with my Debian running happily on the
linkstation running simultaneously, I was able to hop
over to it and apt-get "testdisk" which is a partition
rescue utility, and get it back. Most people wouldn't
have this luxury, so beware.
