Default Lost FreeBSD boot record (when installing Ubuntu)

So, I was finally forced to use Linux because of software for a class at school.

I installed Ubuntu, on the partition that used to hold Windows XP. Ubuntu's disk partitioning tool didn't recognize my FreeBSD partition - it said "unknown." I'm not sure if it's the fact that it was unknown, or if I didn't select a mount point for the FreeBSD partition (I don't think that could be the problem, since I didn't want to change anything about my FreeBSD partition). But, now when Ubuntu's GRUB bootloader comes up, I can't select FreeBSD.

The FreeBSD partition is still on my machine, I just can't boot to it. Does anyone know how to fix this?
