How so?  Surely virtualbox _should_ be able to hand off a VT to the
XP guest, for it to use as a keyboard, mouse, and display.  (This
supposes that the FreeBSD box in question _has_ a keyboard, mouse,
and display, and thus has a VT that it can hand off.)

The easiest solution might be to dd the first 100gb (containing
the FreeBSD installation) to the second 100gb, mark the first 100gb
as unused, and install XP there if it needs to be in the lowest-
addressed part of the disk.  Back up the FreeBSD installation first!

XP itself, when running directly on the hardware, provides its own
graphics environment.  It should be able to do the same running on
a VM with a virtualized keyboard, mouse, and display.
