Look at the FAQ, section "Adding a disk to an existing system", at
http://www.NetBSD.ORG/Documentation/misc/index.html#adding_a_disk .
In a nutshell,

	disklabel rz3 > foo
	disklabel -r -R rz3 foo

will get you a valid disklabel on the disk.  You can then edit with
"disklabel -e" or "disklabel -i".
