These use regular IDE drives so you can plug them to any PC (Note, you're 
voiding the warranty if you open the box).

If FreeBSD OS is installed on them, the first thing I'd do is try to boot from 
the HD unless a custom kernel was made.

If this is not bootable drive, just UFS file system, then use FreeBSD Boot CD 
off freebsd.org to boot the thing and mount the drive according to what the 
drive is named

e.g. mount /dev/ad1s1a /

Good luck!
