Section 8.8 of the FAQ features the word "you" to direct the user. This is incorrect form.
https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/disks.html#idp59472104

The original line read "You can then boot LILO from BootEasy." However, a better way to express the line would be "Then boot LILO from BootEasy."
