Resetting bootloader on a CF

I am trying to reset the bootloader of a pfSense nanoBSD CF card.
I need the boot loader to be reset because
> The embedded image set the bootloader to use a serial console. That isn't necessary with the box I am trying to use (the BIOS does console redirection to the serial port for you) and causes the boot to hang.
Part of the solution seems to be :
1. Mount the CF on a FBSD
2. Initialize the bootloader with :
# fdisk -B /dev/<disk>
3. This is where I need you help…
How can I re-install a boot loader ?
Should I use the command :
# fdisk -B -b /boot/boot0 device
Any other suggestion, guidance will be welcome.
Thanks for your support.
P.S. I'll check your answer in 10+ hours as I am already tired and It is 11.45 pm in Paris where I leave. ;-) - thanks for your understanding.
