I have made the decision to move from Linux to FreeBSD as the OS for our
web server and desktops because I am more comfortable with the FreeBSD

Windows/Linux Box is another story. During the install, it tells me that
since I am installion FreeBSD on hd1, that I will have a chance to install
the bootloader to hd0 at a later time. I have installed the OS twice and
on both occasions I am never given an opportunity to install the boot

The OS will install without a problem, but when I reboot the machine, it
hangs with GRUB being the last thing displayed on the moniter. What have I
