For some reason, I can no longer mount the Windoze drive! The first time I 
mounted it, I didn't even change the fstab! I just issued the command:
mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win
and it mounted! I copied off everything I thought I needed. But when I tried to 
go back in, that didn't work. So I added the line suggested below to /etc/fstab 
and I still can't mount it! Rebooting doesn't help. What am I missing?

FreeBSD comes with a readonly ntfs driver.

Assuming your windows partition is ad0s1
mount_ntfs /dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win

fstab entry:
/dev/ad0s1 /mnt/win ntfs  ro,noauto 0 0

You can then copy stuff, for example:
cp /mnt/win/Documents\ and\ Settings/carpetsmoker/Desktop ~/

If you want read support, you might want to try ntfsprogs
(sysutils/ntfsprogs), which has some basic (EXPERIMENTAL!) read
