Is Win2K on a different hard drive than FreeBSD? If so, then to use the
FreeBSD bootloader, you must install it on both drives. GAG, which has
been suggested, is a nice bootloader, and the FAQ on the FreeBSD web site
has some directions to boot both FreeBSD and Win using the NT/Win2K
That's 3 options, should be enough to find a solution that works for you.
