Are you trying to start from scratch, or just making changes to the
existing table?  If it's the second, then try the -u option:

	# fdisk -u /dev/da0

This should give you a chance to interactively change the partition
table of the disk.  If this fails too, please show us the exact command
line you used and the exact error messages.
