After the kernel loads, you are given an option to load any additional
drivers.  Insert the drivers disk (made from drivers.flp) and choose
msdosfs.ko from the list.

Where did you install the OS? Bear in mind you can't run FreeBSD from a
'logical' partition.

Your example would need to be 1:ad(2,a)/kernel and that would be the third
slice on the 2nd. (physical) drive.

As you've attempted to install from a DOS filesystem, perhaps you'd be
happier with a different boot manager.  Partition Manager from Ranish
http://www.ranish.com/part/ is my favourite.
