How to configure "lilo.conf" to boot FreeBSD, the 3rd OS besides Windows and Linux
 
I installed Windows and Linux in the first hard driver. Now I want to install FreeBSD in the second driver. I choose not to install FreeBSD's Boot Manager, in hopes of booting it through LILO in Linux. So, could anybody tell me how to configure lilo.conf to boot FreeBSD?

You could have tried googling. The first result of my search "lilo freebsd" is this.

hi edit the file /etc/lilo.conf
add something like this
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18-0.12
label=Debian
initrd=initrd-2.4.18-0.12.img
read-only
root=/dev/hda5 (location of boot drive for new linux installed)
