boot0 requires a primary partition, but presumably there is a multi-boot
thing like Grub already in place. FreeBSD itself does not have to be on
a primary partition.
The manual options for creating disk partitions in bsdinstall should
allow creating or selecting the correct partitions. I don't know if the
latest bsdinstall allows avoiding installing the bootcode, or just skips
it if custom partitions are selected.
