Question about rd=disk#s#

Right now i'm trying to dual boot WinXP and MacOSx86 and I was wondering for the rd=disk#s# command if MacOSx86 is to be installed on the second partition does that mean that I should be setting it to rd=disk0s1? Another thing that came to mind is the unpartitioned part of my drive which I assumed was the boot sector of the drive and I was wondering whether that took up a spot in the rd=disk0s# command so that I'd have to switch the 1 to 2 for my OSx86 partition?

Disks start at 0

partitions start at 1

 

Disk0s1 is the first partition on the first harddrive

Disk0s2 is the second partition on the first harddrive

Disk1s1 is the first partition on the second harddrive

Disk1s2 is the second partition on the second harddrive

 

 

If you use the terminal command: diskutil list

 

"

/dev/disk0

#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER

0: GUID_partition_scheme *232.8 Gi disk0

1: EFI 200.0 Mi disk0s1

2: Apple_HFS MacOSX 232.5 Gi disk0s2

/dev/disk1

#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER

0: GUID_partition_scheme *232.8 Gi disk1

1: EFI 200.0 Mi disk1s1

2: Apple_HFS 250GB_Int 232.5 Gi disk1s2

 

GUID makes a SMALL partitionto load EFI so your drive is ALWAYS on partition 2 or 3 or 4 never on 1

MBR can be on partition 1 or 2 or 3 or....
