I seriously doubt it. I has been a while (about a month or two) since I
messed around with device files on FreeBSD (and I am not at home right
now so I can't check it out), but there's something different with them.
IIRC FreeBSD uses hex numbers for their major devices, and it won't work
on ext2fs. (I tried building a chroot FreeBSD system once on an NFS
mounted linux partition, and it didn't work - I had to change the
partition to UFS first).


Get a life. Get Windows(tm). It makes you wanna spend a lot less time
with your pc.
