GRUB has an easy to use setup tool which can be run from
the existing Linux installation. Here you can add an entry
for FreeBSD. You are right that GRUB doesn't automatically
detect a new FreeBSD installation, but it can be configured
to boot /dev/sda1, which is where FreeBSD's / partition
should be should have been installed to. Sadly, the author
did not provide any information which partitioning scheme
(I assume MBR), which partition sizes, and which file system
he did select during installation, so it's more or less
guesswork. Due to Linux's fdisk program not understanding
FreeBSD partitioning layouts properly, the presented output
doesn't help much.

However, a look at the GRUB configuration tool, accessible
from Linux, should be of significant help.
