Remote Installation of the FreeBSD Operating System without a Remote Console
This looks interesting: Remote Installation of the FreeBSD Operating System without a Remote Console. I read about it on the author's blog. Daniel credits Colin Percival's Depenguinator with the idea, but he uses Martin Matuška's mfsBSD (memory file system) to create a FreeBSD image that can be written to a live remote system's hard drive, then booted and run from memory to allow full OS installation. I intend to give this a try, but if anyone beats me to it please let me know how it worked for you.
