Firstly, freebsd can see NTFS, but not write to it.

You need to partition up your hard drive, 1 for windows, and several for 
FreeBSD (Read more in the Handbook).

I have them on two seperate hard disks, and use the 'gag' bootloader on my 
primary drive, with windows 2000, which will reconises both partitions and 
loads the appropriate one.
