Thanks everyone for your replies.

I know for a fact that FreeBSD 32-bit can work with GRUB2

I have asked Djn (I'd created a topic asking how to install FreeBSD
onto Logical Partitions, and he had worked out how to do so... with
32-bit, but couldn't work out 64-bit, which is why I am here) to reply
to this mailing list, either through me, or personally.

In the meantime, hopefully that forum topic will answer some of your questions.

I will investigate the FreeBSD bootloader, and see what sections may
be ported to GRUB2.

Thanks for all antecedent & subsequent replies,

Chip D. Panarchy
