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.
