[PC-BSD Testing] Two problems

For what it's worth, I also dual boot (Win7 and PC-BSD 8.1) with each OS on
their own disks.  But I just use the BIOS boot menu to select which disk to
boot off of, instead of using a boot loader program.  I think this solution
is much simpler and safer.  Also, when I installed PC-BSD, I disconnected my
Win7 disk so that no interference is possible.
