Intro: Disk and partition management with NetBSD

completed by: Hobn

mentors: Martin Husemann, Julian Coleman, Julian Fagir

Additionally to the gpt and mbr confusion, NetBSD has two other systems that add complexity to disk management: Disk wedges (dk(4)) and Unix disklabels (disklabel(5)).

 You should write an article that introduces the reader to these systems, how they interact, and what their use cases are. You should also mention how they interact with additional disk subsystems like cgd(4) and ccd(4).
