Sounds like you need to write a FreeBSD MBR on ad1 too.
eg Both ad0 and ad1 need the FreeBSD MBR for the boot search
sequence to work right.

Then the way it will work is you will see the same menu first
and when you hit F5 it will go to the MBR on ad1 and give you
the option to boot XP.   It might just say ???? if the file
system type is NTSF, but selecting it will boot just fine.
Actually, I don't think it should even show a second menu at
that point - rather just go in to XP, but it might show one and
so, just select the XP then.
