It's a separate operating system.

'The Complete FreeBSD' by Greg Lehey.  It comes with a 4cd set with
the OS on them.  Around $70 (US) for the book along with the cds.  You
can find out more about it and order it online from Walnut Creek CDROM

Sure.  FreeBSD comes with a boot manager so you can run a multiple-OS
system.  However, you can't run them both at the same time.  You'll
need to reboot to switch back and forth between the two.  Take a look
at the the handbook for more info..
