Yes, it is automatic, but it is not pretty. ;)

It basically just looks at the partition table, the partition IDs, and adds entries with a best-guess at the name of the OS on the partition (based on partition ID).

The menu then looks something like:

F1: FreeBSD
F2: MSDOS
F3: Linux

Where F1 loads whatever is on the first partition on the disk, F2 loads whatever is on the second partition, and so on.

Crude, but it works.
