Default GRUB on previous Linux installation

My question is if I can reuse my existing GRUB installation (dual boots Linux/WinXP) to install FBSD 7.1 on my Thinkpad. Thanks!

Yes. Search the forums, there are several examples of menu.lst entries to boot FreeBSD. Some use chainloader, others use the more correct "kernel /boot/loader" syntax.
