You must have come accross the FreeBSD handbook

when you visited the freebsd site and subscribed to the list - it tells 
you everything you need to know - or at least get started.

You can use one hard disk or as many as you can fit into your box. You 
don't need to keep the ftp server and web server on separate harddisks 
unless you don't have enough disk space.

But, take it easy, don't try and do everything in your first install. I 
recommend you take one step at a time and get comfortable with where you 
got - it is easier to locate where something went wrong.
