thank you. If possible I'll avoid to install GRUB 2, I hate GRUB 2. If
possible I'll stay with GRUB legacy or use something similar, e.g.
I want a clear configuration for the menu. The menu must not! be
automatically generated, since this is impossible for my needs.
I experienced GRUB 2 as a PITA and only would use it, if there will be
no other bootloader that is to my taste.
Tomorrow I might read the FreeBSD handbook and install FreeBSD.
