I am wondering if there is a way to boot a FreeBSD sysinstall session from GRUB. This, for example, can be accomplished for many GNU/Linux distributions by using the appropriate installation boot kernel and initrd in the distribution release tree. I am not sure if these exist in BSD, or where to find them. My Google searches on this topic have thus far been fruitless. Why not just burn the CDs? I don't have any CDRs at the moment, but further more am ideologically opposed to CDs as a distribution medium in comparison to reasonable sources like FTP.
