I just installed 6.2 on a 90GB drive. During the installation I

ran partition magic to put a DOS FS on the remainder then ghosted XP
pro onto it.

What is the process now to dual boot this? I have tried booting then:

sysinstall -> configure -> fdisk

then install the bootmanager but when I try to write out the changes
it errors and says:

ERROR: Unable to write data to disk ad0!

Do I need to start over or can I fix this?

by default the variable kern.geom.debugflags will be 0
when 0 it does not allow to update the disk.
Set this flag to 16.
And try to install the bootmanager. This worked for me while creating
new partition. HTH.
And I do not know the functionality of this variable, somebody throw
more light on this topic.
