Yes. It can be done.
It's a matter of enabling DHCP and TFTP and configuring each with the
correct parameters. FreeBSD is capable of being an NFS/TFTP server and
serving out any netboot image that will work with DHCP.
Don't have any links to recommend off the top of my head, but I would
expect a little google searching should turn some stuff up. You don't
really need FreeBSD-specific instructions, just adjust when the config
files are in different places.
