Changing w2k partition to A6



My box its configured to have on the first partition W2k and on the 
second partition OBSD. Now i want to get rid of the w2k to make it an 
A6 obsd partition. After setting the partition type to A6 with fdisk, 
obsd panics and i am unable to boot obsd.  I have set the partition 
type back to w2k type and i can boot obsd again. 

How can i change and add this partition to obsd. Should i just change 
the disklabel and make a ffs filesystem on it with ffs? 
In the mbr disktabel the partition type would then not be set to A6, does 
this matter for normal use ?

Here's my partition tabel
