No, Windows can't understand the filesystem there so it treats the drive as though there were no filesystem on it. It's not anything FreeBSD is doing. It's a lack of support in Windows for common filesystems.
and how would I go about FDISKing the drive in the future should I desire.Don't. FreeBSD does not need you to run an equivalent of FDISK. As mentioned above, there is something called fdisk in FreeBSD and you'd should avoid it until you understand the issues better.
FreeBSD, OTOH, can see your WinME disk. When you've learned what FreeBSD calls your disks, try the following as root or superuser, assuming you have an empty directory called /mnt:
# mount_msdosfs [name of WinME location, perhaps /dev/ad0s1] /mnt
# ls /mnt
When you're done:
# umount /mnt
For more info, as root, superuser, or regular user:
$ man mount
FreeBSD can not only read your WinME disk, it can write to it, so be careful not to make unintentional changes.
