Make sure you first boot up to FreeBSD floppies (which runs a variant of
/stand/sysinstall) and in the first screen, choose "Custom" then the
"Partition" choice.  If you have "slices" that are bootable, make sure you
arrow-down to them and hit "s" to make them bootable.  The next screen will
ask you about Boot Manager options.  My system, for example, has a boot up
screen for about 5 seconds that says:

F1 DOS
F2 FreeBSD
F3 FreeBSD
F4 FreeBSD

And if you don't hit one of those keys quickly enough, it just boots the
last one you chose.  I've abandoned Win98SR1 so I'm just keeping the DOS
slice around until I can migrate my data and files over :)

P.S. This process may be much more grievsome with multiple HD's, not just
partitions so I apologize if this info is useless.
