I'm reading up on BSD, getting ready to install FreeBSD on an "old" Athlon 1000MHz system (as soon as I get a hard drive for it
). I've done a little bit of looking in the threads here, and it seems you can use bootloaders like LILO and Grub. However, when I came across a kernel compilation guide here
, it said to just type something like boot kernel.kernelname
to load whatever kernel. So what I am wondering is, does BSD use its own bootloader by default, forcing you to install LILO manually? Or, do you have the option to install it during BSD's installation process?
