I'm using both 5.0.3 & just tried 5.0.4 and both work.  Remember that
you need to compile in the hints into the kernel.  I just verified
this netbooting FreeBSD inside vmware.

  # uname -a
  FreeBSD  5.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT #1: Sat Dec 29 20:24:00 GMT 2001     
ambrisko@a21p:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/NETBOOT  i386
  # mount on / (nfs)
  devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
  # swapinfo
  Device          512-blocks     Used    Avail Capacity  Type
  [NFS swap]          130816        0   130816     0%    Interleaved

In my kernel config I have:
  #To statically compile in device wiring instead of /boot/device.hints
  hints           "NETBOOT.hints"         #Default places to look for devices.
My NETBOOT.hints is basically a copy of GENERIC.hints.
