FreeBSD7+XP dual boot question
the reason of this cuestion(s) is because i can't load (or i dont know how... yet) the audio module with Debian AMD64 Etch...
im thinking seriously to "kick off" linux (though i like Debian) and use FreeBSD... (i have sound and i'm familiar with it)
i want XP (32 bit) and FreeBSD (AMD64) on dual boot, on the same disk, independant partitions/slices, and i know how to do it with linux (well... really grub does it), but will be the frist time i try it with FreeBSD...
i dont know how to use or configure the BSD's boot loader, i check the HandBook and The Boot Manager and Boot Stages but isnt clear enough (for me), also i found a small guide about How to Dual Boot using GRUB, seems easy, but it doesnt explain how to replace the default loader of FreeBSD and what other steps are needed...
i already check the section about Installation but the options are "default boot loader" and "don't touch MBR" and i don't found other options in the handbook.
any tips will be well received
and i will continue finding more information about that (and if exists a way to keep Win2 untouched and overwrite/override the linux section on GRUB)
thanks to everybody
First install win, then FreeBSD, You'll come with a nice/light boot manager for choosing win or freeBSD.
FreeBSD has its boot manager : boot0.
