How to boot from a slice other than "a"?

Hi all -
I've got a remote server and for one reason or another have it setup like
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/da0s1a 248M 180M 48M 79% /
/dev/da0s1h 14G 496M 13G 4% /mnt
/dev/da0s1h has an exact copy of /dev/da0s1a using dump/restore.
I want to configure things so that the next time I reboot it will
automatically boot from /dev/da0s1h without me having to do anything
(since it's remote I can't interrupt the boot process).
I know I need to modify fstab on da0s1h. And if I was on the console I'd
interrupt the boot process and type in 0:da(0,h)/boot/loader, but I'm not.
And I'm not entirely sure what files to tweak to make that happen. I've
read the boot/loader manpages, but am just not getting it today.
Anyone know what files to tweak?
