I tried the VMWare Server as suggested, not for BSD, but Solaris as I needed 
this for research and did not want to take down my BSD box. Every thing 
worked fine for Solaris on XPPro (I need this for work), so I guess FreeBSD 
would also be ok. Ideal way to experiment with one PC... and easy to use. 
However I did lose almost 10 gig of disk space, small price to pay.
