You'll need to edit your /etc/lilo.conf file. Once you have it open in an editor add a stanza like the following:
image = /boot/vmlinuz #the placement of the kernel on the pcbsd partition
label = pcbsd #name that lilo shows
root = /dev/hda3 # the partition pcbsd is onCode:

That won't boot PC-BSD, just linux...
Read this: http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Linux+FreeBSD-4.html for lilo
or this: http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/man...e/FreeBSD.html
For grub, add an entry to grub.conf/menu.lst using those commands.
