It isn't on the Oberon0 diskette.  It was written by A. Fischer 
and released after the alpha release of Oberon0, as I recall.  Prior to BootMan, 
other boot managers were used.  Ref.
Appendix N: Adding Oberon to a boot manager
FWIIW, I used MasterBooter.

But if you want only to run Oberon, no boot manager is needed.
Just be sure to make the partition bootable in the last step of 
the Oberon0 installation.

The whole installation process is quite straightforward and 
painless, provided you follow the steps carefully.
