4. Booting FreeBSD using LILO

You can easily boot FreeBSD with LILO. Do not install the FreeBSD boot selector (Booteasy) if you want to use LILO. Append the following lines to your /etc/lilo.conf file and run lilo (assuming the FreeBSD slice is /dev/hda4):

other=/dev/hda4
        table=/dev/hda
        label=FreeBSD

If you have installed FreeBSD on the second SCSI drive, use something like this (the FreeBSD slice being /dev/sdb2):

other=/dev/sdb2
        table=/dev/sdb
        loader=/boot/chain.b
        label=FreeBSD
