What did you try to do with Grub and what problems occurred?

Eduardo already gave an answer re boot0cfg.  If you like, you can try 
GAG (freeware), which I'm using now and like, or BootItNG (shareware), 
which I've used for a long time as a boot and partition manager.  Never 
had any problem with either.  The XP bootloader should also work, but 
I've never been exactly sure how to implement the 2-hard-drive solution 
in the FAQ on the FreeBSD web site.
