boot with GRUB

I recently installed 5.1-RELEASE - I was previously using 5.0.

When I had 5.0, I could easily boot FBSD from GRUB using these settings
in my Linux's /boot/grub/menu.lst file:

  title FreeBSD
  root (hd0,1,a)
  kernel /boot/loader

These settings no longer work, and I get an error message that Linux
does not recognize this (FBSD's) filesystem.

I can boot my FBSD partition by using GAG on a floppy disk, but I'd like
to get GRUB (which is installed on the hard disk) to do the job. I'd
welcome any suggestions.
