Hi Marian,

it's the new filesystem "UFS2" which comes by default with FreeBSD 5,1.
Grub can read only the older one "UFS1". I think you have to install new :-(
If you are creating the slices / and /usr/ and so on go to the appropriate
and type 1 (not F1) and filesystem wil change from UFS2 to UFS1.
Good luck
