I've solved the problem and repreat it here for future generations reference (: It appears that the MBR was infact corrupt, causing fdisk to get confused... the following command made the hd appear blank and let it all work again:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 count=2000
(Yes i lost my data but the drive now works!) Thanks for ur help (:
It would be more precise to use
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 bs=512 count=1
as this will delete exactly the first block of the first IDE-disk, aka MBR. If your MBR is corrupt, but you still care for the data, you have better chances to recover this way.
