FreeBSD comes with a readonly ntfs driver.
Assuming your windows partition is ad0s1
mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win
/dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win ntfs ro,noauto 0 0
You can then copy stuff, for example:
cp /mnt/win/Documents\ and\ Settings/carpetsmoker/Desktop ~/
If you want read support, you might want to try ntfsprogs
(sysutils/ntfsprogs), which has some basic (EXPERIMENTAL!) read
