During the process of upgrading a 1.1.5.1 machine to 2.1.0-950726-SNAP
I inadvertently overwrote the partition of a 1GB SCSI disk wich
was containing all my saved mail messages and such. "It's like
you have broken with the past" at the moment :-).

I managed to reestablish the partitioning scheme by running a 1.1.5.1
install disk set partially on it. Now the only problem is that
all disklabel data I can find doesn't seem to be the right one.

Is there a way (with a program or whatever tool) to reestablish
or recover a disklabel from a given disk?

Presently the only chance to find certain things is to grep through
the raw device :-(
