i've installed Dragonfly on Laptop and its dualbooting with a Windows 2000
System on a fat32 partition. The fat32 part. is the first and uses 10G.
Dragonfly is installed on the last 15G of disk. My problem is that i can't mount
the fat32 partition, because there is no disklabel for it. I can see the
partition using fdisk ad0, but i wasn't able to add a disklabel for this
partition. I tried this by using disklabel -e ad0. Disklabel shows that
Dragonfly uses the whole disk (looking at the cylinders). So i couldn't give a
disklabel to my fat32 partition. I tried both the release CD and the updated
release A CD.

you shouldn't disklabel ad0; only use disklabel on BSD slices (i.e. ad0s2 or ad0s4 for you i think)!

ad0s1 should easily mount with
# mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s2 /mnt
or with
# mount -t msdos /dev/ad0s2c /mnt
