That really depends on how you want to do it..

If you want the use boot manager that comes with FreeBSD you will  
need to
install it on the primary disk (C drive)..

I don't really know much about XP, but isn't it based on NT? The NT  
also has its own boot manager which you could use instead.. But XP might
not have it..
