I would recommend installing WinXP first, then Ubuntu.  The selection of a
boot manager is a personal choice.  I think Ubuntu uses the GRUB boot
manager, which many people like.  Install FreeBSD last, being careful not to
overwrite the MBR of the hard drive.  Once FreeBSD has been installed, boot
up Ubuntu and modify the GRUB menu configuration file
(/boot/grub/menu.lst).  I found a sample of a FreeBSD entry here:
