I would like to try the opposite, installing FreeBSD 8.2 where
OpenSolaris and OpenIndiana are installed.
Zpool is from 2009.06/111b version so I guess FreeBSD will work with that.
So I would like to add FreeBSD to sun GRUB. (I downloaded 8.2 freeBSD
My reasons are: Newer userland programs and willing to try something

S11Ex on same zpool/disk).
