Grub2 is on the first hard-disks-MBR.
I also put grub-legacy (grub1, so to speak) on a stick and tried that.
Seems like the BIOS and the boot-loader see the hard-disks just the other way around.
(at least that is the result of my tests with grub-legacy from USB-stick)
What i don't get is why i am able to boot all OSes on hard-disk1 (/dev/sda). And with the usual syntax.
I also tried "super grub" and it can't boot an OS from hard-disk2 neither.
I also tried my external hard-disk: same problem.
I yet have to try the USB-stick, but assume i will run into the same problem.
In general i got enough space on /dev/sda1 for as much OSes i want. The only reason i used hard-disk2 (/dev/sdb2) at all is that BSD needs a primary partition.

Seems so to me too.
