Thanks for the  answer so far. No, I don't intend to buy a new system. 
I'll just replace the old system drive with a new one in the same 
system. If I understand you corrrectly it will be enough to have 
geom_load set on this new fbsd install to have FreeBSD load (and create) 
the existing geom mirror I now already have?
