the scripts are at:

install these scripts on /root

formats the disk (or usb stick) at da0,da1...) make a bsdlabel on it
and using the baselist file, copies the running system files into the
it will work on FreeBSD  versions greater 7.0
this way the usb is bootable, have a filesystem on it.
the same root password...
you can fix the files    /etc/rc.conf, /boot/loader.conf  in the usb
filesystem in
order for it to boot from your kernel. 
remeber to check for an "a"  partition on your usb stick

the script needs to have access to install bash (pkg_add -r bash) so it
needs internet of a package repository with bash in it.

Once boot from your usb stick, you can do the same procedure to
transport the running system to another disk
if you intend to make a zfs running filesytem on the target disk (hd)
make the disklabel (bsdlabel) this way
a: 1gb        16         unused
b: 4gb        *            swap
d: *            *            unused
that is: 
a partition 1gb at offset 16
b swap partition 4gb after partion A
d: the rest of the disk (this will hold the zpool).

the makebootdisk will install a running system on A (about 300mb...)

is a script that, when boot from the hd created with makebootdisk
moves the running system (booted from "a" partition) to the the zfspool
created, in the "d" partition mentioned above..
it edits the loader.conf  in order to boot on zfs.. in order to boot

After that, you are running on ZFS...
