running fsck on root filesystem

I have a remote machine on whose boot disk I want to run fsck. Is there any
way of booting freebsd form the network and then getting into fixit mode
without a cdrom or a floppy ?

I am using pxeboot so far. What is happening is that when I put
"installFixitHoloShell" in the install.cfg then sysinstall throws me to the
shell that is VERY barebones. I can't run even a 'ls'. In this case how do
I figure out what disk slices I have in the system and on which I want to
run fsck ?

Basically I need some equivalent of the Sun command "ok boot net -xs".
