MBR blown away

I need help.

I added a slice to a single hard drive dual-boot (windows) system and now
I guess that scrambled my MBR.  I get three options from the FreeBSD (5.4)
boot manager:

1. DOS
2. FreeBSD
3. FreeBSD

I can boot to FreeBSD (the new slice is fine) by choosing option 3 but the
windows/dos option is fried.

My current strategy is to use boot0cfg:

# boot0cfg -B

But I'm a little squeemish.  I don't want to be locked out of FreeBSD (I
barely use Windows but I still would like it back for Visio).  Any
