Oh ok.....

Anyway as I'm familiar with BSD 8.x I did the install without reading!!

My issue was really to find the .img file for USB booting.

All done now but can't seem to get Fedora 16's GRUB to boot BSD 9.0.... 
I guess it's time to consult the documentation after all; even though 
Google'ing provided results that didn't yield answers as the Linux GRUB 
can't find the partition/slice combo???

Tried chainloading but that didn't work either probably as no 
boot-loader got loaded into the PBR by default.
