Thanks for your kind support.  I add root(hd0, 0) but grub reports that can't find file?
Here is the output of fdisk

Device                  boot           System
/dev/hda1              *                FreeBSD
/dev/hda2                                Linux

Something like the following should work in

  title FreeBSD
  root (hd0,a)
  kernel /boot/loader

assuming that the 'a' partition is where the kernel resides.

There might be a catch: I'm not sure if GRUB understands
UFS2 filesystems, so you might need to ensure that the 'a'
partition is UFS1.
