Can gpart create ntfs and FAT-32 partitions?

I want to create a GPT disk structure that has the following partitions:
NTFS (1.2G)
NTFS (200G)
FreeBSD OS (250G)
NTFS (15G)
FAT-32 (100G) (needs to be RW for W7 and FreeBSD and ntfs-3g is just
not stable enough)
FreeBSD data only (380G)

The NTFS partitions are to place the Windows7 system, recovery
partition (which I may
not use), and Lenovo's odd "SYSTEM_DRV" that is required for booting.
gpart has no
indications of how to create an NTFS or FAT partition. Any way to so
this? Or, should I
use W7 to do that and leave the space for the FreeBSD ones?
