lilo and hiding partitions

2 pages that cover hiding partitions (for/from winANY):
LILO Trickery
Booting Multiple Operating Systems With LILO.

they both use deactivate and set=dos16_big_hidden in lilo to hide partitions that occur before the intended C:\ or might get mixed up with another winANY C:\.
    partition = /dev/hda1
      deactivate		# Deactivate and hide the DOS partition.
      set = DOS16_big_hidden
    partition = /dev/hda2
      deactivate		# Deactivate and hide the Win 95 partition.
      set = DOS16_big_hidden
    partition = /dev/hda3
      deactivate		# Deactivate OS/2's partition.  Don't bother
                                #  to hide it because Win 95 can't see an HPFS
                                #  formatted partition.
    partition = /dev/hdb1
      activate			# Activate the partition Win 95 is being booted
      set = DOS16_big_normal
any idea what the 'set=' command should be for fat32/vfat partitions?

in grub, i'd be using hide and unhide (but i don't use grub).
