Wow, stealth FreeBSD.
I haven't done it, but I think you can make a live CD and boot and
run from that. But what about disk space to use - you will want to
leave some stuff there somewhere to work on. Just getting it booted
is not very exciting or fulfulling.
Of course, if the other system on the machine is MS, and you squeeze
it down to make room for some FreeBSD work space, it won't show up
in MS. So, maybe no-one will notice the space shrinkage. You could
go ahead and make it FreeBSD bootable too, but then they would see
the FreeBSD boot select menu.
You could put everything there, but replace the MBR with the MS one
and then use the CD to start the boot and then select the FreeBSD
slice from its menu and then just run from the disk. Then the CD
is only needed for its MBR. I think that would work.
Anyway, check the FreeBSD handbook on making a live CD and maybe
someone else will also dip in their oar.
So, what's so scarey about someone else knowing FreeBSD is on the
