Summary: 1st-level bootloader used in FreeBSD distribution

The boot manager scans the partition table and prints the menu on the
screen so the user can select what disk and what slice to boot. By
pressing an appropriate key, boot0 performs the following actions:
* modifies the bootable flag for the selected partition to make it
bootable, and clears the previous
* saves itself to disk to remember what partition (slice) has been
selected so to use it as the default on the next boot
* loads the first sector of the selected partition (slice) into
memory and jumps there
