2. My second problem, which isn't really a great problem (more of a
vanity thing really), is with the FreeBSD boot loader. On boot the
loader looks like this:

F1   ???
F2   FreeBSD

Default: F2

Now thats all fine and dandy, except the other OS on my hard drive is
Windows XP Professional. How do I alter the boot loader to reflect F1 as
being WinXP? I've read the man-page for boot0cfg and it doesn't appear
to offer what I need, moreover I see no point in fiddling with the
existing configuration of the slices. As I said, its mainly vanity.

I hope that someone will be able to answer my questions, many thanks in

See <URL: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/disks.html#CHANGING-BOOTPROMPT>. If you would like to have WinXP named in the boot menu, you have several alternatives. Section 9.10 of the same FAQ tells you how to use XP's bootloader to boot both XP and FreeBSD. Or you can install Grub from the FreeBSD ports (Grub is very nice - read the online documentation *thoroughly* beforehand). Or for something more automagic, try GAG.
