Subject: Unable to boot FreeBSD (dual-boot)



I have a dual boot with Windows 2000 (ad0s1 is windows, ad0s2 is FreeBSD 5.2.1). I trashed a working dual-boot somehow. Now the problem is, I get the boot menu listing both Windows and FreeBSD, but only Windows boots (with F1). Pressing F2 for FreeBSD just gives a beep.I booted from the fixit cd and ran the commands seen in the handbook:

# fdisk -B -b /hd/boot/boot0 /dev/ad0
# disklabel -B -b /hd/boot/boot0 /dev/ad0s2

For label use /boot/boot file, /boot/boot0 is for mbr.

/hd is the temporary directory I created to mount /dev/ad0s2a, so I guess my slice is still ok.

Please help!
