I believe this typically happens if you install or reinstall an MS system
after the FreeBSD. XP is a jealous god -- it rewites the MBR with a standard
boot pointing to the MS slice.
If this is the case go back to the FreeBSD installation CD and reinstall the
MBR using the FreeBSD boot manager. Or follow the luke <lgrady at gmail.com>
suggestion to achieve the same result.
