 I can set the processor affinity on the Win2k, but I am having trouble
 configuring the FreeBSD to use a particular processor and a particular
 NIC.

Just because a machine has multiple processors and multiple
NICs, doesn't make it capable of operating as two machines in
the same case.  There are a lot of different things, like the
memory and I/O bus, the 8254 clock, etc., which have to be
programmed differently for different OSs.

To run two virtual machines on a single real machine, you are
going to need some software assistance, e.g. a product like
VMWare.

To do server partitioning, you'll have to acquire a Unisys ES7000, IBM
zSeries or comparable system. Standard x86 multi-proc systems (As you
would buy from Dell, for example) do not support this.

You can however run Win2k inside VMware on a FreeBSD machine. This option
is even more flexible than partitioning as it lets you turn the VM off
and reacquire the resources that were tied up by it.
