Sparc dual boot problems

Here's the situation


The machine is a SUN ULTRA 5 and I have 4 IDE devices. I am new to SUN hardware I know much more about PC's.  The first device primary master is the cdrom which Solaris 10 and FreeBSD were successfully installed from.  Currently Solaris 10 which is the primary slave is the default boot device.  FreeBSD is installed on the primary slave drive.  I am used to the FreeBSD install on a PC and during that install it gave time for configuring the boot loader but I can't find it on the recent Sparc FreeBSD edition?  During the partition process it says I will have the option to configure the boot loader latter.  Right now I can't boot FreeBSD and I have no idea how to configure this machine to make it dual boot?  I would like to have Solaris 10 as the primary O/S, FreeBSD as the secondary and Sparc Linux on the third hd.  


Can you please help?
