Very good!.    It was just a matter of getting the proper commands added 
to your original menu.lst and I wasn't at all familiar with BSD so I 
started with ubuntu's commands and just
changed the hard drive numbers.

There are other linuxes in my original menu.lst posting that have the 
same format as the one you found to work.
