Is that the only thing I need to install to be able to get into FreeBSD?

Well, no, actually. :-) You don't need to install XFree86 to get into FreeBSD.

Please help me out by telling me how to get Xfree86 and where to install it
to so I can get it when Im trying to install it. I have FreeBSD on another
partition but now when I go into My Computer, it doesnt show the partition
with FreeBSD on it. How will I do it then? I have the I386 platform. PLEASE

As you've noticed, Windows doesn't understand the filesystem FreeBSD uses. Don't boot into Windows, boot into the FreeBSD partition.

It's probably easier to use /stand/sysinstall to install X11 via prebuilt packages (either via FTP or from the installation CD), but you can also do something like:

cd /usr/ports/x11/XFree86-4
make install

...and build and install X yourself (but this will take quite a bit of time).
