AFAICT, the 'explicit' list of steps missing from the FAQ is:

  1. Run boot0cfg from FreeBSD:

        # boot0cfg -B /dev/ad1

  2. Copy the MBR of the ad1 disk to a file:

        # dd if=/dev/ad1 of=bootsect.bsd bs=512 count=1

  3. Save this file to a floppy disk, or some other Windows-accessible
     place.  Using a floppy-disk, formatted as FAT, this could be done
     by typing:

        # mount -t msdosfs /dev/fd0 /mnt/dos
        # cp bootsect.bsd /mnt/dos
        # umount /mnt/dos

  4. Boot into Windows and copy the file A:\BOOTSECT.BSD to C:\

  5. Continue as described in the FAQ :)
