Hey Josh Thanks for your help. I just reinstalled freeBSD 4.8 all over again (I think it's cause some how it got messed up). I then typed in the following at the grub command line.
grub> rootnoverify (hd1,0) grub> chainloader +1 grub> boot -or- (this one's better) grub> root (hd1,0,a) grub> kernel /boot/loader grub> boot It's pretty much the same thing that you said, except it only works if you change the 1 to a zero for the (hd1, 0, a) instead of (hd1,1,a). I'm guessing that you can also modify the grub to have an extra option in there that does the commands that you specified above. All you have to do is modify the file the grub looks to when trying to find out what os' are present in the hard disks? Thanks again.

See what "DOS" and "Linux" do. If one of those actually boots FreeBSD, rename it.
