Not exactly. FreeBSD From Scratch requires a working system and several other items 
(See #3 Prerequisites). What I am looking for is information for making install CDs 
(binary install is ideal) that will complete the whole process start to finish without 
requiring anything from the user. 

I believe a modified install CD with sysinstall scripts is required, but I am not 
clear on what to modify in the Boot CD configuration.

In Linux I would simply modify the ks.cfg and burn a new CD using the modified 
/isolinux. Is there anything comparable on the FreeBSD boot CD? 

Thanks for responding!
