Well, I setup my laptop to dual boot freebsd 6.2-p4 and vista.  It was
actually an XP/freebsd at first (installed XP, then installed freebsd).  The
normal boot loader worked exactly as expected.

So, upgraded the XP to vista, which seemed to go perfectly normal.  Got
everything the way I wanted it, and then popped in my 6.2 cd and rebooted.
Went to fixit console, and did a

Fdisk -B -b /boot/boot0 /dev/ad0

Rebooted, booted into freebsd fine.  Rebooted again, hit F1 for DOS, and
kaboom.  Winboot.exe is missing!

Has anyone successful configured a freebsd/vista dual boot, and if so, how
did you get around this issue?

I have vista and freebsd on separate hard disks, so I just switch
which drive to boot off in the bios
