How to dual boot Linux (CrunchBang Linux) and PC-BSD 10 with ZFS file system

This is a tutorial which shows how to dual boot Linux and PC-BSD 10. PC-BSD 10 uses ZFS as the file system and grub for the boot manager. I was able to successfully dual boot PC-BSD and CrunchBang Linux in my laptop.

I was able to achieve this after lots of trial and error methods. I have not found a valid guide in the internet to do it. All the tutorials were outdated or at least not working for me. I have spend a lot of time in the pc-bsd/freebsd irc channels and finally able to achieve this after trying out different suggestions from the irc members. Thanks to them all for the guidance.
