Yes, it is possible. Check out the desired version with cvs, then build world and kernel, finally, install with DESTDIR=/dir/of/choice Details here: http://www.locolomo.org/pub/pxeboot/diskless.html
Tried to follow your description, but I seem to have lost some thing, the client now starts the PXEBOOT process and it looks in the (/var/diskless/FreeBSD/)/boot/defaults/loader.conf that says (/var/diskless/FreeBSD/)/boot/kernel But according to your instruction http://www.locolomo.org/pub/pxeboot/pxeboot.html the kernel was installed in the /var/tftp/boot/ Should I simply make DISTDIR=/var/diskless/FreeBSD installkernel instead?
