Sometimes I have to reply to myself, since I don't make enough sense
the first time.

}You have to disklabel the disk before you can see the disklabel.  And
}it must have a disklabel before you can disklabel it interactively.
}The babble is just something it will do every time it sees the old
}partition ID.  If you don't want to disklabel it by hand, I still have
}the old install script lying around, that I hacked at so it will do
}initial disklabels.

Or you can just do 'disklabel wd0 > /tmp/' then
'disklabel -R -r wd0 /tmp/' then 'disklabel -r -i'
(disklabel wd0 was showing you a made up disklabel, not the one on the disk.)
