Hi,

        On modern laptops, the BIOS allows you to boot from an USB key. So, you 
could 
prepare a key on another machine to bootstrap FreeBSD, by putting a proper 
MBR, partition table and partition ("slice" in FreeBSD vocabulary). The BIOS 
makes real-mode programs that use it believe the key is a regular floppy 
disk.

        Unless the FreeBSD's boot loader has problem or your BIOS does weird 
things, 
this should work. Please note that I've not tested this procedure myself, so 
I'm not 100% sure it will work.

                Olivier
