Question 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?

I used lilo to boot FreeBSD, DOS, and Linux about 4 years ago. As I remember it adding FreeBSD to lilo.conf was trivially easy. This description sounds about right:

As I remember it the table parameter was unnecessary.
