These use regular IDE drives so you can plug them to any PC (Note, =
you're voiding the warranty if you open the box).

If FreeBSD OS is installed on them, the first thing I'd do is try to =
boot from the HD unless a custom kernel was made.

If this is not bootable drive, just UFS file system, then use FreeBSD =
Boot CD off freebsd.org to boot the thing and mount the drive according =
to what the drive is named

e.g. mount /dev/ad1s1a /

Good luck!
