I have this problem quite often in my version - 5.1-Release #9.
The trick is to never reboot. <g>
The bad superblock is always found on my second partition,
mounted on /disc2 (of which I use half a gig as swap space, the
other 5.5gigs do absolutely nowt)
Sorry. Let's cut to the chase. Type "newfs /dev/da0s1a" and you
should get back on the ball fairly quickly.
