You can use the grub bootloader to load freebsd (assuming that nothing

It's been some time since I've done this myself (I am no longer dual
booting FreeBSD on this machine), but I'll try to be as accurate as
Start your system, when it gets to the grub loader press "c" to get to
the grub command line.
Do you know what your freebsd slice is? Even if you don't, you can get
this info from fdisk -l from debian. Or you could try searching in the
command line.
Type something like:

root (hd0,2,a)
GRUB doesn't recognize the partition type for some reason.  There's
pretty clearly something wrong with the partition, I think.

Is it possible that somehow the partition type was changed?
Try as root an fdisk -l from your debian installation.
Your freebsd should show up as partition type a5 (BSD/386)
Otherwise you could use fdisk to fix this.
And for that you need a fixit floppy / LiveCD :).
