Note that BIOS partitions are not the same as BSD partitions. The former is known as slices in BSD. fdisk -BI /dev/da0 will initialize the disk for one *slice* covering the whole disk. BSD partitions inside this slice will not be afflicted, so /usr, /var and /tmp are probably still intact as well :) If there were other slices on the disk (bios partitions) the original partition table may be recovered using sysutils/gpart.
