Need help: FreeBSD and Win XP Pro Dual Boot
Ok. Need some advice guys.

I am new to BSD and I am trying to do dual boot between Windows XP and FreeBSD.

I first isntalled FreeBSD on my machine, and then Windows XP.

I just found out this is not the right sequence, but darn! to late. Should have known Windows will take over the FreeBSD boot loader!

So my question is, how to you turn the Boot Loader back, so I can select between Windows XP and FreeBSD?

Thanks in advance!

You want to boot into freebsd( with a floppy if neccessary) and go to su. Type "/stand/sysinstall". This will load the system installer and allow you to change the boot loader. Check the handbook, its at file:///usr/share/doc/handbook/index.html if installed, or look at the freebsd site for more details.
