In the function that handles my options page I've added

add_meta_box('fcbox','My box!','something_in_the_box','petition');

and later I have

function something_in_the_box() {
    echo "Living in a box world!";

defined. But I don't see that box, or text anywhere on my page. Am I
calling do_meta_boxes wrongly (what should that third argument be?)?
