problem while installing FreeBSD

It's the same problem when I remove CD. Does it make sense: I am installing
on the machine which already have Windows 2003 server, and file system NTFS.
I thought FreeBSD may take care of this file system or it may allow me to do
partition while installing. Thanks.

It sounds like you still have the CD in the drive...Did you follow the
instruction to "Remove any removable media from the drive.." before you
rebooted the machine?
Remove the CD (if it is in the CD drive) and boot from the hard disk
