   You also havt to disklabel the device: su to root
					  chdir to /usr/mdec
					  disklabel -B sd0

   And try a reboot.

      But I  remember to have problems with  my installation (disk one is a
   ESDI wd0, and FreeBSD is a SCIS sd0). I  have changed the followind lines
   in boot.c and add a -DBOOT_HD1 to the makefile (remove the -DBOOT_HD).

        part = 0;
        unit = drive & 0x7f;
#ifdef  BOOT_HD1
        maj = (drive&0x81 ? 1 : 2);
#elif defined(BOOT_HD)
        maj = (drive&0x80 ? 1 : 2);             /* a good first bet */
#else
        maj = (drive&0x80 ? 0 : 2);             /* a good first bet */
#endif
