Not at the moment. The only reason FreeBSD 7 is working now is because I packaged it into a floppy-formatted disk image; my current boot system can't directly chainload non-Linux kernels or other bootloaders, only floppy/hard disk images and Linux kernels. Of course, theoretically, the floppy-packaging approach should also work with PC-BSD but its ISO file size is prohibitively large to do this manually, for hosting and maintenance reasons. I can probably come up with a more elegant solution, like automating the disk-image creation process from the original ISO file client-side or figuring out a way to chainload the FreeBSD loader, but that'll have to wait for a later release.

Can you help with this problem?
