It is relatively easy to produce a FreeBSD 7.0 booting USB key (for
example for the installation of FreeBSD 7.0 if the target machine has no
CD but only USB externals), if one follow more or less the description in

I said 'more or less' because the problem is that the procedure at
certain point assumes that you have the installation data (which is on
FreeBSD CD1) accessible, but you have at this moment the LifeFS CD

I helped myself doing the process based on my running FreeBSD 7.0
laptop, mounted the CD1 and built the USB key.

I'm asking me (and all) how this could be done having only the FreeBSD
7.0 CDs and no running FreeBSD 7.0 system?
