I used gparted (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/ ) to move the XP partition
to make room for fBSD. You make a bootable CD and I found it to be quite
simple. Make sure that your XP partition is defragmented before using
gparted. Otherwise, gparted will not let you manipulate the partition.

Once you make a decent partition for fBSD (mine is around 25G), just follow
fBSD's installation docs (
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/install.html [+]) . Again, it's
pretty easy.
