Yeabut that's what I thought that the -i option was for!  I mean isn't the parameter for
that supposed to tell gpart which sub-part of the whole "geom" thing that is named on
the command line is supposed to be modified?

Well, now I'm totally confused, but I'll try it again in the way I think you are suggesting...

# gpart modify -i 1 -t freebsd-ufs /dev/da1s1
gpart: geom '/dev/da1s1': Invalid argument


What else should I try?
