You want to type "select /dev/hdb", not "select /dev/hdb2".

Unfortunately, it's sometimes useful to "select /dev/hdb2"...
I'm not sure what to do about this problem.

In any case, if the device length == 0, I guess that just means
it's a crazy device, so a message like:

"This device isn't big enough to have a partition table or a file
system.  You probably selected the wrong device."
