Having trouble dual booting OpenBSD 3.7

I just installed openbsd 3.7, I read the multiboot FAQ in the OpenBSD website but I'm still not too sure what to do it says that after the installboot type in :
dd if=/dev/rsd0a of=openbsd.pbr bs=512 count=1

and after that I should copy the openbsd.pbr to my C: in win and add a line in the Boot.ini

here is the link to the doc:

I was wondering where is the openbsd.pbr after I've: dd if=/dev/rsd0a of=openbsd.pbr bs=512 count=1 where is the file??

Or even better guide me through to an easier bootloader so that I can boot both BSD and Win

You can use you lilo to triple boot linux, windows, and openbsd. For example:
boot = /dev/hda
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  vga = 773
  root = /dev/hda6
  label = Slackware
other = /dev/hda1
  label = Windows
  table = /dev/hda
other = /dev/hda2
  label = OpenBSD
  table = /dev/hda
