Yes, that is required to boot a GPT disk on a BIOS system.

This is a good question. As far as I know, boot0 will only work on real
MBR disks, and does not understand GPT partitions. Any time I've needed
to multiboot, the other operating system can't handle GPT anyway, so MBR
So using MBR/bsdlabel partitioning and boot0 is one option. grub or
grub2 or whatever they call it now is supposed to be able to handle GPT
partitions. I have not tried that.
Another option for GPT is to use the bootme and bootonce flags. See
