Have 120 GB HDD sliced for:

FreeBSD installed last.
Unfortunately, did not think to do the within-slice partitioning for
FreeBSD with DragonFly's modern toolset (..once bitten..)
Ergo, though I had FreeBSD NOT write bootblock or touch the MBR, it did
munge the disklabel..
The DFLY bootloader I was using now throws 'invalid partition' and DFLY
liveCD disklabel reports 'Bad magic number' for that slice.
I guess you used disklabel64? What you could try is overwriting the disklabel64 by a new one which is exactly the same. The contained hammer filesystem should not be destroyed in that case. Let us know if you need help figuring out how to do that.
