Booting FreeBSD from LILO

If you're running Linux and want to boot FreeBSD from Linux's LILO, it is fairly easy to do. In Linux, edit the file /etc/lilo.conf and add the following lines:

other=/dev/hda2
  table=/dev/hda
  label=FreeBSD

Change the line beginning with other= to reflect whatever device Linux recognizes your FreeBSD drive as.

After you have changed the configuration file, reinstall LILO by typing lilo as the root user.
