Running FreeBSD binaries on Linux?


Hi, I got a binary file which is meant to be run on FreeBSD, but now I need to run it under linux. Is there any way that I can run it under Linux? It is a simple application which runs only on console.

Btw, I am using Debian Sarge(kernel 2.6.8).

Thanks.

Sorry but I should have made my question clearer...

I do not want to run a linux binary on FreeBSD, but I want to do the reverse, which is to run a FreeBSD binary under Linux.

In short, I am looking for "FreeBSD-compability" in Linux...

He wants to run FreeBSD binary on Linux, not vice versa!!!
Only thing I think you can do is install FreeBSD, on separate partition or in the virtual machine like vmware

Is that possible? Sorry for my stupidity
FreeBSD uses utterly different format system. I never thought that slicing can be read on Tux
