How can I know if a partition is securely a PReP partition? Besides  
check the partition type (41), is there another test that I can do to  
confirm that?

At the page bellow are two other codes used for the same code of PReP (41):


41 Linux/MINIX (sharing disk with DRDOS)
41 Personal RISC Boot
41 PPC PReP (Power PC Reference Platform) Boot

What kind of checks can I do? Can I use the partition size or if it's  
the first of the disk as parameters to check it?
