It is rather foolish, but like I should talk...I set it up just a few
weeks ago.

First off, I left the FreeBSD boot manager out of the picture. I used
the bootpart utility (http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm) to
automagically get my boot.ini set up correctly for the windows boot
loader so that FreeBSD is now listed as an option.

Then I set FreeBSD to be the default and the countdown to 11 seconds
from the original 30. :)
