I did some changes to beastie.4th file to add kernel choice boot menu. You
can see screens and additional info at my wiki:
If you want to enable kernels menu add *kernelmenu_show="YES" *to
To enable kernel.old menu item add * kernelold_show="YES"*  to loader.conf
To enable kernel.pcbsd menu item add  *kernelgeneric_show="YES"*  to

The next step is adding script to rc.shutdown which checks /boot directory
for available kernels and then apply changes to loader.conf

As you can see I add generic kernel menu entry (for kernel.pcbsd). IMHO
adding generic pcbsd kernel to default distribution is a the good think.
Kris, can you add that kernel?

PS. You can found my current beastie.4th file in attachment. It is still
under development. I hope to finish work during the next week or two.
Best regards, Yuri Momotyuk
