Wait....do you already have a free partition, or are you going to resize your linux one/add another hard drive? If so, you'll need to replace the "root (hdx,y,a)" with your hard drive and partition number! If you only have one hard drive, then it'll be "root (hd0,y,a)" (I'm not sure about the "a" because I've never used FreeBSD before). The "y" in what I have written is the partition number, which AFAIK can be found by typing in "fdisk -l" into a console window (the partition will only be visible if you've already made it). As far as resizing your linux partition goes, I don't actually have a clue, though I know it can be done...could I suggest you ask a moderator to move this to a thread like "Linux - General" where your question will be answered more fully than I can?
Not sure if you know, but you should type it (what you wrote in your last post with the few corrections I have mentioned) into /boot/grub/grub.conf, which you want to open with any text editor. Best of luck,
