bootstrap @ boot0


My question is does the FreeBSD 5.1 bootstrap program in MBR automatically detects other disks (with OSes) inside?

And therefore I do not need to edit the bootloader program. Is that right?

Well, I know I can go ahead and try it out, but I am sleepy and cold

Okay.
I plug in the hdd with FreeBSD 5.1 as Primary disk and another hdd with windows 2k as secondary.

it manage to detect it as <F5> disk1
and when I hit the F5 key
it says it can't find kernel.

Now how do I make FreeBSD boot win2k?
