I looked at my notes (don't trust my memory) and saw

docs/disk:parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary 1MB 512MB
docs/disk:parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary 512MB 2560MB
docs/disk:parted -s /dev/sda mkpart primary 2560MB 100%
docs/gentoo:parted -s /dev/vda mkpart primary    1MB  512MB
docs/gentoo:parted -s /dev/vda mkpart primary  512MB 2560MB
docs/gentoo:parted -s /dev/vda mkpart primary 2560MB  100%

So, either an absolute value or a percentage of the remaining disk. I
never did the plus thingie then.
