The default behavior of Booteasy is to give a choice between FreeBSD and
DOS; selected DOS brings up the NT boot loader.  FreeBSD cannot read NTFS,
I don't know if there are plans to teach it to (my guess is that fixing
msdosfs is a higher priority).  For information on using the NT boot
loader to boot FreeBSD, see http://www.freebsd.org/FAQ/FAQ76.html#76  

I got there via the "documentation" link on the main page, which leads to
a lot of other useful stuff too.
