Grub and your mount command are having difficulty reading UFS2, the new default filesystem for FreeBSD 5.x. One solution is to choose to use the "old" filesystem, UFS. I have seen previous discussions here about this topic; right now I cannot remember what was said, but you should be able to find these messages with a search from <URL: http://freebsd.rambler.ru/>. 2. If the steps you took in response to #1 prove insufficient, choose a "normal" MBR (not the FreeBSD boot loader, not to leave the MBR untouched) when installing FreeBSD.
