Question Problem installing the boot manager - FreeBSD

Hi All,

I'm very keen to try FreeBSD, especially AMD64 vesion for my Athlon64 3400.

The only trouble I had was installing the BootManager heres my setup;

Disc 1 - Windows XP SP2.
Disc 2 (SATA) FreeBSD (was Linux).

When I select the Boot Manager options, I assume I will have to install on disc one ? Or do I need to highlight both and then go onto Disklabeler ?

First of all I selected Disc 2 which FreeBSD was installed on and it carried on the installation, only to find my PC still loaded LILO.

I tried selecting disc 1, but then Disklabeler went to that disc instead of my FreeBSD one.

I know I can boot DOS and run their App, will this suffice ?

Any ideas ?

Many Thanks,
