Subject:   fdisk info on drive destroyed, recoverable?
Message-ID:  <199512052302.PAA00710@crg8.sequent.com>

A friend of mine has a disk which was "half" DOS and "half" FreeBSD and
after a machine crash, the fdisk partition information was zero'd.  Any
ideas on how to recover the information?  Does anyone have a program
that would scan the disk for the disklabel magic number to find the
start of the BSD partition?  Or a way to extract the information from the
beginning of the DOS partition, which was at the begining?

Any suggestions appreciated.  Thanks,
--Ben
