You need some sort of boot manager.   You can figure out how to write
the MS one back there or just leave the FreeBSD MBR there or find
another favorite one to put there.    The only problem with the 
FreeBSD MBR is that it displays ??? for bootable NTFS file systems 
rather than something that looks like NTFS or Win-XP, or whatever.
