ArchBSD on Syslinux

I currently using syslinux as my bootloader on archlinux and I dont want to change it with grub for some reason. Is there any way to call archbsd / freebsd from syslinux? I've tried a solution from syslinux official site but it looks like a generic setting not the actual working setting.
Here it is, the one from syslinux:

LABEL freebsd
  KERNEL mboot.c32
  APPEND  freebsd_kernel kernel_option kernel_option --- freebsd_initial_ramdisk

Re: ArchBSD on Syslinux

I've tried and failed trying to get syslinux to boot FreeBSD:

Just to note. mboot won't work with amd64/x86_64 FreeBSD.

However you could try chainloading.

LABEL boot_hd0_2
MENU LABEL  FreeBSD
COM32 chain.c32
APPEND hd0 2

That would boot from the first disk, using the second partition. So append it to FreeBSD.
