Hi list. I´m running Suse linux 10.0 on my i386. A couple of years ago I used FreeBSD 5.2 on another computer.
Now I want to dual boot Suse 10.0 and FreeBSD 6.1 Release using linux grub. I just can´t get FreeBSD to boot... I have been trying everything I can think of. 1) installing FreeBSD as stand alone with/without bootloader. => Problems with diskgeometry. Have tried everything I can think of. 2) Installing Ms Dos 6.1 as the first OS and FreeBSD as the second OS. => MS Dos boot fine. => FreeBSD didn´t boot, just dumped the registers (I think it is them). 3) Installing Suse 10.0 as the first and FreeBSD as the second OS. => Suse boots fine. => FreeBSD doesn´t boot, just dumps the registers (I think it is them). Right now I have Suse 10.0 and FreeBSD 6.1 Release installed on my (single) harddrive wich is an Western Digital at 80G. From my BIOS I can´t read how it recognizes the disk geometry. This is my /boot/grub/menu.lst: # Modified by YaST2.
