I have a couple of multi-boots configured that way. They go c- drive/extended/freebsd. It has worked since about 4.1.Not about the infamous 1024th cylinder "limit," but the /extended/freebsd part -
I tried a couple of times to install FreeBSD 4-STABLE after Win2K after Win98. When installing Win2K after Win98, MS automagically configures Win2K's installation partition as extended (apparently, even if W2K is installed on a different disk than W98). Then I'd look at things with fdisk and it would show me Win2K's extended partition/slice going all the way to the end of the disk. So I'd remove W2K and reinstall it, leaving a FreeBSD-sized gap between the end of W98 and the beginning of W2K.
Any special magic to install FreeBSD after an extended partition, or you just went about business as usual and can't figure what on earth I'm talking about? ;)
