Here is an example of adding PC-BSD to a Linux distro that is using grub version 1:

title  PCBSD 8.1
root   (hd0,1)
kernel /boot/loader
  • Title: This will be the text that is shown in the boot menu and can be anything that makes sense to you.
  • Root: The root of the partition containing PC-BSD. In the above example, PC-BSD is installed on the first hard disk (hd0) and on the first partition (,1). Start counting your hard disk from zero (e.g. disk 0 for the first hard disk, disk 1 for the second hard disk) and your partition from one (e.g. 1 for the first partition on that disk, 2 for the second partition, etc.)
  • Kernel: Used to load the primary boot image. For FreeBSD and PC-BSD, always use /boot/loader.

For more information on using grub version 1, refer to the Grub Legacy Manual.
