you can use mdconfig to make a file and newfs/mount it, or as Warner
said mkfs... (I've done the former)... You can all use GEOM_UZIP
to compress the mfs image down a bit more too...
makeoptions MFS_IMAGE="/tmp/mfs.ufs.uzip" # mfs image
options ROOTDEVNAME=\"ufs:md0.uzip\" # Root device
In my kernel config to put the image into the kernel, and boot from
/me used it before he had an ethernet driver working.
