Well that's true,  I guess it won't be too bad a solution if I put 
Freebsd raidz as the first boot option in BIOS and then use the keyboard 
F8 boot menu, Gigabyte MB FX I forget which one exactly will give me a 
menu of drives to boot from,  then I can boot to Win7 and play my 
Starcraft II, Warcraft III from there.  I guess it would be the same as 
choosing an entry from Grub2.

Time for bed... I'll look at this some more in the mornin
