	dd if=/dev/acd0c of=my_image bs=2352

what version of FreeBSD are you using?
if you are using versions 4.x you can make:

	cd /dev
	./MAKEDEV acd0t100

to make device files for your tracks, and then:

	dd if=/dev/acd0t1 of=track1.trk bs=2352

to extract the first track of your cd.

I don't know how to make it in FreeBSD-5, I rather modified my
kernel, adding:

	device	atapicam
	device  scsibus
	device	da

and that let me use xcdroast with my atapi cd drive.
