Reduce boot-time delay on FreeBSD?

Say for instance, I would like to reduce the delay/waiting time for the boot-time menu from 10 seconds to 5 seconds, how would I go about doing it?

From what I've been able to find, entering "autoboot 5" into the right file would take care of that for me, but the man pages are unclear as to which file it is. Is it /boot/loader.rc or /boot/loader.conf or some other file?

Also, does it matter where in the file it is placed?

Nevermind...found out through trial and error.

Enter this into /boot/loader.conf :

autoboot_delay="5"
