Hello,

Okay so here is the situation:
Server has dead fd and cd drives, or maybe none at all. You want to install FreeBSD
on it.

The idea I had was to create a small partition, copy the contents of a cd into, set it
to boot off that partition, reboot and it would boot up into sysinstall.

Would this be possible? Or is it a dumb idea?

Boot from usb-memory

or use pxe

However I would choose to connect a CD-player
or
move the harddisk to some other machine that have a CD and do the install and then move the harddisk back.
