FreeBSD, Ubuntu and Win XP on one system

I recommend installing FreeBSD first, then Windows and then Ubuntu. For
reasons that I don't know, WinXP SP3 will become unable to start if you
installs FreeBSD after it (It will freeze on the welcome screen). - I don't
know if this problem just happened with me or with others people too, but it
happened more than one time.
Ubuntu uses GRUB boot manager and as far as I remember it won't recognize
FreeBSD partition out of the box, so you will have to add some lines to
# For booting FreeBSD
title FreeBSD 5.2
where "(hd0,a)" reflects the position of the FreeBSD primary partition.
