Well... in fact, that's not restoring the boot manager,
this is re-installing the boot manager. :-)

You can install the boot manager also from a FreeBSD
live file system or fixit console, using the boot0cfg
command, if I remember that procedure correctly.

Especially in conjunction with Linux as another OS on
the disk, I think this would be the most comfortable

But as I said, I'm no multi-booter. =^_^=
