Since you should make a backup in any case before you convert the
machine to FreeBSD, why not use it?

So make a backup, e.g. with tar and write that to CD-R. Then create a
new UFS2 filesystem (FreeBSD's native format) and restore the backup. I
think this would be less hassle than trying experimental drivers. :-)
