you need at least one bootable operating system. try a livecd if youre
system doesnt boot at all.

AFAIK grub has problems with reading ufs (please correct me if i'm
wrong! maybe it's just because my grub version is a bit old ;) ).
you can get around this by putting the grub config on a partition grub
can read (like ext2fs or fat32) and then just chainload the freebsd
loader installed into the freebsd partition. of course this is not the
best solution but it works for me :)
