Am I missing something obvious? The HDD is'nt write protected or anything,
the freebsd loader went in fine....

	# ls /boot/grub/              fat_stage1_5            iso9660_stage1_5        menu.lst
  reiserfs_stage1_5       stage2                  vstafs_stage1_5
	e2fs_stage1_5           ffs_stage1_5            jfs_stage1_5            minix_stage1_5
  stage1                  ufs2_stage1_5           xfs_stage1_5
