Does this still work? Is there now a better way?

I have a non-native gentoox install on my F: drive. After using "magic newfs" a couple of times, I've become frustrated because I have files that are greater than 4gb in size, and the 4gb loopback partitions don't cut the mustard.

From what I can tell, I am supposed to be able to choose where to boot from (i.e., "native," "CD," etc.). However, I can't figure out HOW to choose anything but "native," which is the defa...
