It can be done, the problem with BSD is that I have been unable to find pxe
images and all the howto's out their talk about building this extravagant
image with NFS/Rsync and whatever else. My images give me the ability to
boot so that I can install the system via ftp/http not sure if that's what
your looking for or not? With FreeBSD 4.x releases theirs a image called
boot.flp. You can boot this using memdisk and initrd=boot.flp
With the 5.x tree the boot.flp image for whatever reason was shrunk from the
2.88 size to 1.4 and now requires a additional disk. They have a bootonly
iso, I was able to convert this ISO so that I could boot it with memdisk.
If you want the image for 5.4 let me know, it's about 25 MB and it could
actually be a lot smaller I just haven't shrunk it yet.
