I like to install FreeBSD 2.2.7 (2.2.8) and 3.0 on the same disc.
Because the FreeBSD boot loader looks for the first compatibility slice, it
only possible to boot from the first installed release (first slice).
Install the 'new' bootstrap from 3.0 on both the 2.2 and 3.0 slices.
See the 'disklabel' manpage; the new bootstrap lives in the files
/boot/boot1 and /boot/boot2 on the 3.0 install's root filesystem.
And if you use the NT bootloader like I do, don't forget to update that
as well (c:\bootsect.bsd), otherwise you'll end up in a right pickle...
