The parted(8) man page says this about mklabel:

  label-type should be one of "bsd", "gpt", "loop", "mac", "mips", "msdos",
"pc98" or "sun".

But the internal parted help says:

  LABEL-TYPE is one of: bsd, gpt, mac, dvh, msdos, pc98, sun, loop

The internal parted help is correct.  The man page should say "dvh", not "mips".

This was observed in parted-1.6.15-3.2 (from SuSE SLES9 SP1).  The most current
CVS source is the same.

I am attaching a patch to change "mips" to "dvh" in the parted(8) man page.

Thank you.
