There *is* a difference. First of all, the original text is incorrect
even for 4.x (it should say "wait until the countdown, press enter,
type 'boot -s' and press enter again" since 4.x has /boot/loader).
Second, a default 5.x installation has the horrid daemon menu, where
you press 4 to get single-user mode (or 6 to get the loader prompt, at
which point you type 'boot -s' as in 4.x)
