If you follow the handbook as it is, you should end to something like,

Neo ~ # fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda (SGI disk label): 64 heads, 32 sectors, 8682 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 bytes

----- partitions -----
Pt#    Device  Info     Start       End   Sectors  Id  System
 1: /dev/sda1  boot        51       101    104448  83  Linux native
 2: /dev/sda2  swap       102      1079   2002944  82  Linux swap

 4: /dev/sda4            1749      8681  14198784  83  Linux native
 9: /dev/sda5               0        50    104448   0  SGI volhdr
11: /dev/sda6               0      8681  17780736   6  SGI volume
----- Bootinfo -----
Bootfile: /unix
----- Directory Entries -----
 0: btld3r     sector    4 size   73684

Follow exactly the instructions in
http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/handbook/handbook-mips.xml?part=1&chap=4 ,
the section "Getting the SGI Volume Header to just the right size".
After that I think that you will be fine. Use the dd command to
delete the partition table, and start again.
