grub - grub2

is it possible to boot into 4mlinux from grub legacy?
if yes which is the correct entry in menu.lst?
if no does grub2 (installed from 4mlinux) automatically recognize sda2 with FreeBSD when 4mlinux is on sda1?
or do I have to install grub2 in FreeBSD first and let it recognize 4mlinux then?

Unfortunately, I haven't been using both Grub Legacy and FreeBSD for ages.

As for GRUB2, it uses the os-prober tool to find all operating systems installed in your computer. Have a look at the following command executed by me in 4MLinux:
root@4MLinux:~$ ls /usr/lib/os-probes/mounted/
05efi	   10qnx     20microsoft  40lsb   80minix  90linux-distro  efi
10freedos  20macosx  30utility	  70hurd  83haiku  90solaris
I cannot see any BSD-related item above. This means that GRUB2 in 4MLinux is probably unable to recognize your BSD distribution. On the other hand GRUB2 in FreeBSD should recognize any Linux distribution (at least as an "unknown Linux distribution").
