FreeBSD on ext2 partition


Hi,
I have a dual boot system where freeBSD running on UFS partition and linux running on ext2 partition.
Now from linux, i want to format UFS partition(where BSD is present) to EXT2 type and install BSD on EXT2 partition. For this-

When i am in linux:
1. I have formatted the respective BSD partition to EXT2.
2. I have BSD distroot with me. So i copied this to EXT2 formatted disk and unzipped.
3. file system type changed from UFS to EXT2 in grub.cfg and fstab for this particular partition.

after doing above changes when i try to boot in Free BSD, the box hungs with reason as can't find the kernel.
Can someone has idea on how to make BSD to boot on EXT2 partition and what the other changed need for this.

thanks,
Vijay

Pretty sure FreeBSD does not support running on a Linux file system. I believe FreeBSD will only run on UFS or ZFS but someone else may confirm this.
