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.
