This is likely your problem source!!! /dev/rad[n] is an alias of /dev/ad[n]; that is it refers to IDE drive n. (Historically they had somewhat different meanings but even then still refered to the same physical device -- the 'r' means raw) If n was 2 you have over written the beginning of ad2. > Where the xxx were the version for the image and [n] was 1... > /dev/rad1 (or was it.. 0..).

Likely you will need to reconfigure your drive and reinstall from your backup.
