To be a little bore verbose: FreeBSD and all other modern operating systems run in some variation of "protected mode", as opposed to DOS which ran in "real mode". When you run any program as a user in such an operating system, the program doesn't have direct access to hardware, and the many other low-level details of the program execution are very much different than in DOS. Specifically in this case, you cannot call DOS and BIOS interrupts from protected mode. If you need to do something with raw data on a disk drive, there are ways to do it (see g_open(3) on recent versions of FreeBSD) but the user executing the program needs sufficient privileges/rights for the operation to be successful.
