Well, as that link you posted so eloquently explains:

Copy the PC-BSD boot sector to the Windows partition (eg. as file pcbsd.pbr):

(description will follow)

I particularly like the 'will follow' part, combined with the 'Page last modified on November 25, 2005, at 01:42 PM' near the bottom. :roll:

Look here.

Step 4 of the description there apparently extracts the boot sector, only they named it bootsect.lnx instead of pcbsd.pbr

Not to sure if this will help, but this describes how i dual booted using the windows boot loader. You want to read up on step 4. Basically you copy the PCBSD boot sector onto a file, and point windows at it. It works, but i'd recommend grub or something similar.

BTW, how are you finding PC BSD compared to freeBSD?

i find pc-bsd a hell of alot beter than freebsd vako.

it has a nice kde 3.5 desktop enviroment and i made the taskbar look like a mac its sweet u should try it.

oh btw it is based on freebsd but the diffrence is it is nearly all gui witch is a good thing and still really fast to install
