I love the "RTFM" - who came up with that anyway?

That said Jindřich, your English is more than passable!

Have a good weekend!

Looks like you are not that fluent in dual/multiple boot schemes. I
would suggest that you buy another sata disk and install FBSD in one
and Linux on the other and boot selection with your BIOS. Either that,
or RTFM on multiple boot systems, whether it's booting FBSD from Linux
(grub) or the other way around. You could start by Googling this:
"dual boot linux freebsd" there are many references on the list
archives on the subject and many other references as well.
