Multi-OS Boot Question

I currently have a dual boot Windows/Linux system and want to add another partition and install FreeBSD.
In the FreeBSD install, it mentions that the boot files must be within the first 1024 Cylinders. Is this a requirement for FreeBSD itself or just for the FreeBSD boot loader?
If I use a linux boot loader (LILO or Grub) which doesn't have a problem with the 1024 cylinder limit, will it be able to boot FreeBSD if it's boot files are above cylinder 1024?
