From the subject I gather you want to shrink the BSD slice, or have room, then 
install Windows.

The fact you are asking the question suggests you don't have your work backed 
up, and won't listen when told to backup your work (takes one to know one). The 
other possibility is that you want to install BSD now, but Windows later.

<SNIPPED BACK-UP BOOT SECTOR SUGGESTION (decided it was more trouble than it 
was worth)> 

I any case, you need a way to boot FreeBSD without the bootsector, such as the 
installation CD.

As I am not familiar with the gory details, I will refer you to Chapter 2 of 
the Handbook:

If you can't get the Windows Boot manager to boot FreeBSD, you will want to use 
the FreeBSD boot manager, mentioned in section: 2.6.3 Install a Boot Manager.
