I reccently yesterday tried out PcBSD the first time and first I have to say thank you a lot!
In the last 10 years I never was impressed about a new distribution of any os ive seen like pcbsd.
now I tried to make a dualboot on the same disk with centOS(I need it actually for learning all the rpm based linux distribution stuff). first I had problems when configure my disk that it doesnt let the not partitioned space for free but this is another issue.
so I took the simple way of configuration at the and just create parition and click on it to install. because I have the first primary partition for linux fs and the second for swap, the pcbsd get the third.some how I couldnt add a swap partition bigger than 999mb as the 4th device so I decided wait with that
the installation went fine ive got no erros
this is my disklabel
sde1 Boot Primary Linux ext3 83886,08 *
sde2 Primary Linux Swap / Solaris 2147,49 *
Pri/Log Freier Bereich 0,02 *
sde3 Primary FreeBSD 71303,15 *
Pri/Log Freier Bereich 2704,12 *
and this here is my grub.conf (I use grub legacy)
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You do not have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /boot/vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sde1
# initrd /boot/initrd-[generic-]version.img
