Hi all,

For those that have been following this thread:

I now have Norton GoBack uninstalled and un-hooked from the MBR
-Had to go to Symantec and get a rescue disk,
-The rescue disk tried to un-hook GOBAck from the MBR,
    -It found the MBR borken (due to the FreeBSD Boot Manager install),
        -So the rescue disk ran all night restoring the original C-Drive,

-As of this morning, I once again have a bottoable windows system,
-FreeBSD 6.4 is intalled, but,

-I have not boot manager so I cant get to the FReeBSD installation.

Can someone (please!) explain how to install the FreeBSD boot manager again?

THanks all,

-Grant
