I've had to install Windows XP in dual boot on a freeBSD box, and of

I've tried booting with the install CD and I use the fdisk utility to
mark the fbsd partition bootable and then said I wanted to install the
freeBSD bootloader, but I didn't know how to make it actually write the
changes to the disk.
So... is it possible to restore the bootloader this way? Maybe I could
install lilo from a live CD but I don't want to install grub from
windows because I'll probably remove it soon, but I think lilo just
places itself in the boot segment so it should be fine.

Indeed, fdisk(8) can be used to do this.
