If anyone knows anything else I should try please let me know.

Tom, some time back, and I cannot recall whether it was grub-legacy or grub2, and pcbsd or netbsd; I had installed the %bsd for a very short time, and booted it with the grub% without issue.

From your statement above, it could be that the devicemap was not set up with the bsd partition. So you might want to try the following..

$ grub-mkdevicemap
$ update-grub

Good luck, hope this helps,

I finally got the system fixed so I can now boot both the freebsd and the ubuntu from the hard disk. I had to dis-install grub2 and install grub-legacy. There were direction to do this on the ubuntu10-10 manual page. Grub-legacy worked the first time. I guess that the grub team needs to pay attention to "If it a'int broke don't fix it "
