I try to setup a FreeBSD PXE bootable rescue image.
I'm aware of the rescue mode on Disc1 on every FreeBSD CD. My goal is to setup a non interactive session.

Boot via PXE, set a root password depends on the mac address, start ssh and allow remote login.

Adrian Steinmann showed something similar at the Eurobsdcon 2005 in Basel with "Single User Secure Shell, Installing small systems with FreeBSD using the Secure Shell RAMdisk environment"

He uses a ssh key, where i have to set the root password during the boot, depending on the mac adress.

This is not a big issue with linux systems, where most rescue systems allow you to set password=xxx during the pxe boot.

Maybe someone has already done this and wants to share some information with me :)
