Let's first assume that you did not install the boot
manager (which would be useless in your particular
application case); instead, you have installed the
standard MBR.

Modify /boot/loader.conf to something like this:


Refer to /boot/defaults/loader.conf for the meaning
of the options if they're not obvious. :-)

Regarding the autoboot delay, let me quote from that

	Delay in seconds before autobooting,
	set to -1 if you don't want user to be
	allowed to interrupt autoboot process and
	escape to the loader prompt, set to
	"NO" to disable autobooting

That means ="0" would mean to boot immediately _with_
the option to get to the boot prompt - you just need
to be fast at the keyboard. :-)

Oh, and see "man loader.conf" for details.
