    I currently have SUSE Linux 10.0 Installed with the grub boot loader. If I choose to install free BSD and select "none" for the boot loader type, will the grub automatically detect the new partition or is it just safer to install on top of it.

    PS: Is it possible for me to make a live boot loader CD with an ISO.

    If I were you, I would install the BSD bootloader to the root partition.
    Then make an entry for BSD in your SUSE menu.lst. Here is my entry in SUSE for BSD.
    Code:
     title BSD
    root (hd1,a)
    chainloader +1
    It is on the first partition of the 2nd hard drive.
