That's a silly answer.  The way to get more people to use FreeBSD is to make 
the installation process as easy and complete as possible.  If bootstrapping a 
system using the livefs file system is possible, then there's no reason that 
the functionality couldn't or shouldn't be built into the installer.

Yes, a higher-level sysadmin can do it...but the vast majority of people who 
administer servers for a living are not higher-level sysadmins.
