Not within the same machine.  You can obviously run Samba on a FreeBSD
box to export the filesystems to a WinXP machine, but there's not
support in WinXP for being able to read a BSD filesystem.  There are
products that will let you read the Linux ext2/ext3 filesystems from
Windows: eg -- but nothing for
FreeBSD filesystems.
