Ok!!! :) Get ready...
To osloader of NT manage make a prompt (menu) to load OpenBSD is
easy, follow the steps below:
1) boot OpenBSD in single user mode
at boot prompt "boot>" put boot -s
2) when you get the system prompt make a copy of the first 512 bytes
of the root disk:
dd if=/dev/wd0a of=/OpenBSD.bb bs=512 count=1
3) mount a msdos disk and tranfer the file OpenBSD.bb to the disk.
4) start WinNT
5) copy the file OpenBSD.bb from floppy tho the C:\
6) add the following entry (section operating systems]in your
boot.ini file (you must change the permission to save it)
To test, reboot your machine :) Itīs work fine for me!!! :)
Hmmmmm... can anyone put these instructions in a FAQ or an OpenBSD
standard HOW-TO??? the title can be: Integrating OpenBSD boot and NT
I think consulting another sources of instructions can be "dirty"...
unnofficial. Maybe lost of identity!!!

I'm not sure I understand your question, but if you want to use the NT
loader to boot OpenBSD see:
Of course, substitute "OpenBSD" everwhere you see "FreeBSD".
