FWIW, I use a boot script (freebsd.tbxi). when <space> is pressed on
boot, the bootscript will load the FreeBSD loader and then FreeBSD
boots. More info in the first 2007-01-29 entry on this page:

The only problem with this approach is that Itend to keep space pressed
for too long, and then end up in the FreeBSD boot loader, and have to
issue the 'boot' command manually.
Not a big problem, the machine runs FreeBSD all the time anyway.
