ghost imaging CD

Hello. I should say first that I've tried searching for an answer to
my problem, with no success.
I am attempting to create a bootable CD with a live FreeBSD system on
it, for the purposes of installing a ghost image on a local hard
drive, retreived from a remote share (I'm using samba, if it matters),
and make that image bootable.
I have succesfully created the CD, partitioned the hard drive using
the process described in the bsdlabel manpage, and I have succesfully
installed a label on ad0s1, to get ad0s1a-f the size I wish them to
be. I have also succesfully performed newfs on each of them, and
extracted the images (in the form of a tgz) to each slice.
My problem is this: when the machine boots, it gets to the stage:
Mounting root from "ufs:ad0s1a"
and it freezes.
Can anyone offer some insight as to why this might be happening? If
more information is needed, I can certainly provide it, though I have
included everything I see as relevant.
