Not that one.
You could use one of the commercial utilities like Partition Magic to
convert to or from NTFS, but not a UNIX type.
You will have to make it a FAT type and then mount it in FreeBSD
and then read it from FreeBSD to a place in a UFS slice. Then that
version would not be accessible in a MS system.
