    I suggest just read the first part of the device to determine what file
    system it is, then find partitions, then each partition has the
    information you want at specific places on the disk.

    That would be easy. But what I need is to get the information from the
    device, not filesystem. Why? Because there is no filesystem on the drive
    and I need this info because I am going to create a filesystem there.
    And, as you pointed out, I need to PUT this information at specific
    place on the disk. Under Linux, I can at least get it from /proc but
    need this on Darwin.
