Look into grub.  It is a good bootloader similar to beos's (though I don't
have beos, and have only seen the bootloader once).  Grub comes with an
extensive info page and is free software.  So if you are interested in
bootloading, you can either just configure away or hack the actual code... 
I am very happy with grub.

I am not sure if grub can boot beos, but I imagine it would be quite simple
through it's chainload method.
