Tell me something:   Does FreeBSD boot?

It seems to me Win2k is somehow broken but, if FreeBSD can boot
then you can read the NTFS slice, therefore you can make a backup
of your data storesd in Win2k slice.

mount -t ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt

will mount slice 1 of ATA disk 0 if it contains an NTFS file system.
