What's (statically) included in the GENERIC kernel, is listed in
You can compile your own custom kernel, as explained in
Don't forget to statically include every module that is needed to
locate and load the kernel though (e.g. ata drivers), because you
won't be able to kldload the initial modules without booting first.

I use the LIVE filesystem on the FreeBSD ISOs. In combination with
/stand/sysinstall (or /usr/sbin/sysinstall), option rescue, you
can always repair a broken installation. Most of the time, the
boot loader will allow you to boot an old kernel (say /kernel.old)
if your new kernel is broken. FreeBSD's bootloader is much more
stable/reliable than LILO ;)
