I haven't had an issue with it finding the loader yet (but I'm not
using GRUB, I'm using the FreeBSD loader).  And following the
directions linked above, I used the geom label process, so I don't
have to worry about /dev/daXs1d or whatever it was detected on...just
use /dev/ufs/FreeBSDStick (or whatever you label it).
