Making a custom FreeBSD iso

Im trying to get a couple of scripts of mine onto a bootable FreeBSD 5.4
install cd. Im going about this as follows.
Im ripping the iso image from the cd with dd
dd if=/dev/acd0 of=file.iso bs=2048
Then, Im mounting the iso image
mdconfig -a -t vnode -f /usr/iso-orig/file.iso -u 0
mount -t cd9660 /dev/md0 /iso
..and copying its contents to disk with cp -R
Now, all of the sudden, the /rescue dir grows from 3.5M to 455M so after
i copy my scripts to the extracted iso filesystem on my hard disk and
try to make an iso I cannot burn the ISO because its way too big. Can
anyone help me with this?
Im trying to get some kind of autoinstall going ( above just install.cfg
with sysinstall ).
