Booting FreeBSD, Mandrake and XP with GAG

I have pretty much settled down with Mandrake Linux. I know all the basics and know where to go to get help, mainly here at LQ. I still use XP and may keep using it until more is available with alternate os'. Now it is time to try FreeBSD and laern more about it. It sounds like a great os that is different then Linux and XP but can run a lot of Linux based programs. Anyways I tried GAG before and it didn't work with Linux. Mainly becuase I screwed up. You can't use grub with it but need to have lilo installed on the root partition. XP was picked up easily by GAG. Now what I need to know is this. How do I use GAG with FreeBSD. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

You use it just like you do with the other two. Tell it to add a boot point and point it at your root partition... Or am I missing something?
