FreeBSD's concept of "partitions" is somewhat different than you 
might think, coming from a Win32 world. For a primer on FreeBSD's 
disk partitioning scheme, see:

And for a step-by-step tutorial on installing FreeBSD, check out:

Tip: If you've never done it before, do it on a sacrificial box the 
first time, before you try and put in on a box that it needs to 
coexist with another operating system. If you don't have one, back up 
your Windows system first- FreeBSD is usually pretty friendly, but as 
with anything, one mistake and it's time to get out the CDs again. :)

Regards and good luck,
