Will BSD work with a SATA II drive?  Will it "see" the other operating

These are two 300GB drives.

This machine has Windows XP SP2 installed as well, although I never use it. After the original install, I've booted into Windows twice to update the patches. (Probably should do that again some time.)

I use FreeBSD's native boot manager.  It "sees" Windows XP as "Other".
