I know for sure that linux fdisk gives a warning about the disk
partitions not being in the right physical order. You can change the
order under expert options and write it back to disk.
Partition magick is know to "switch" numbers on disk. Other OS's like
linux but also solaris "see" it and offer to change it back.
I'm not sure about fbsd's fdisk. Too long ago. If not, try one of those
knoppix live CD's
