Hi Chris :)

my machine is a Linux only multi-boot PC, among others I've got Arch
Linux and Ubuntu installed. There are several free logical partitions on
my 2 HDDs (no RAID, no LVM), but only one primary partition on each
drive. Both primary partitions aren't empty. The primary partition of
the first drive contains backups only, unfortunately non of the free
logical drives is large enough to move the data.

If needed I'll shrink one logical and increase another logical partition
and than move the data from the primary partition to this logical one.
This will result in /dev/sda1 (as Linux does call it) free for FreeBSD,
but dose cause a lot of work.

I wonder what bootloader to use to boot into FreeBSD and the different
Linux kernels and what file system to use for this partition.
