Does a proper output from the prtvtoc command indicate that the disk has been correctly labelled?
what are the other places I can  look  to know if a new disk has been correctly labelled?

IF you use format and you make an error, like to partitions overlap, format gives you an error.  So I would think if you selected a label and it was wrong format would show ant error.  Can you post you label?  What problem are you having?

PAQ and refund, although randhir's problems appears to have been bad hardware (from his CS post). I think the information given is pertinent
