Question trouble with Multi-boot w/WinXP-Mandrake-FreeBSD setup

Help, I am trying to create a tri-boot machine that will have WindowsXP, Mandrake Linux 10, and FreeBSD 5.2.1. The original OS was WindowsXP, I then created a partition with Parition magic7 and installed mandrake (this worked.)
When I tried to create a 3rd part. for installing FreeBSD, I now get taken to a DOS-type screen the reads:

What od I need to do? Or if necessary how do I get windows XP to boot atleast?
